Chicago Tribune on Polish Slave Labor in Italy

My friend Chris Spolar of The Chicago Tribune wrote a nice piece on the Polish workers who basically worked as slaves in Italy. This story, of course, broke quite a while ago and was, not surprisingly, huge news in Poland. But it's good to see that it has filtered down to the States, at least to the home paper of the largest conglomeration of Poles outside Poland. (Chris used to be a correpondent based in Warsaw)

This is just another indication that the "Polish migrant" stories will be in the headlines for years, even on this side of the ocean.

They have arrested three people in Krakow in connection with this. It's not simply an Italian Job, but Polish organized crime as well. Shocking story.
