"One of the most important aspects of the interview is to check the tidiness of the future help. Lam Ling checks the hands of a student."

Heartbreaking. All these people want is a chance to work and make a future for their family. Then, before they know it they become victims of bonded slavery. About the Indonesian politicians and work agencies that support this practice? Every one of them deserves to go through what they put their victims through, in addition to jail time and public shaming.
