Foreign students say visa program abused

For years, it has been touted as a form of vacation diplomacy: a U.S. government program that selects college students from across the globe to come work at beach resorts, amusement parks and other seasonal jobs. In the process, the visitors are expected to imbibe American culture, practice English and take home fond memories.

But in August, students complained that their work conditions were closer to a sweatshop than a summer break, sparking demands for government intervention and a firestorm of bad publicity that federal officials are trying to tamp down.

Duh, what do you think is the point of this visa program?  To give various firms cheap and easily exploitable summer and seasonal labor.  For the alternative is hiring native born American high school and college students who recognize exploitation and slave wages from a mile away.
