Ima Mutal was 17 when she left her home in Indonesia to work as a nanny in Los Angeles. As soon as she entered the U.S. her passport was confiscated by her new "employer" and her servitude began. Hundreds of thousands of people are thought to be enduring forced labor in the United States. This is just one story.
