Chinese Restaurants Raided

Chinese Restaurants Raided

It is reported that authorities in Michigan USA have raided 17 Chinese restaurants, which they suspect have avoided paying millions of dollars in taxes and importing undocumented workers as a "modern version of indentured servants."

Search warrants were also issued at 21 homes of suspected undocumented Chinese workers.

Investigators believe that one family/related families own the restaurants, which are mostly in the central and west-central areas of the Lower Peninsula.

It is reported that 20 workers were living in one house with "very spartan" furnishings in Grand Rapids.

The owners are accused of understating their income by 2/3rds.
