NEW ORLEANS (WLOX) -- About 100 Indian workers who quit their shipyard jobs last week, have filed a federal lawsuit against their former employer.
You'll recall the workers marched last week outside the gates at Signal International in Pascagoula. They accuse that company of "human trafficking" and mistreating its Indian workers. Now, those same workers have filed a federal lawsuit in New Orleans.
The former Signal employees were hired under the federal guest worker program. Along with filing the federal lawsuit, they have filed formal complaints with the U.S. Justice Department.
