Thai workers say Aloun Farms did not treat them well

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

 Some of the 44 Thai nationals believe Alec and Mike Sou of Aloun Farms that brought them here did not treat them well and abandoned them after only five months of work, the workers and the lawyers said Friday.

"Alec and Mike might have had sweet dreams last night, but not us," Chakkree Sriphabun said speaking through a Thai interpreter.  "We had nightmares."

Ten of the laborers and their lawyers Melissa Vincenty and Clare Hanusz talked to reporters at a downtown conference room a day after Chief U. S. District Judge Susan Oki Mollway granted the Justice Department civil rights prosecution’s request to drop forced labor charges against the Sous.
