U.S. contractors have made billions from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But now, several - including big names like KBR, formerly part of Halliburton - are being investigated for slave labor.More than 250,000 people who were promised good jobs with decent pay ended up in conditions of modern slavery.Their passports were taken away, they were held in tents and shipping containers, and many were subject to brutal physical abuse. Meanwhile, the contractors kept lining their pockets with the taxes of ordinary American families. Our tax dollars were never meant to fund slavery. Tell the US Senate to IMMEDIATELY pass the bipartisan End Trafficking in Government Contracting Act and stop taxpayer funded modern slavery.
