Refugees Exploited vs. Refugees Welcome

What the Swiss firm Top Clean Reinigungen GmbH did to a hard-working Sudanese refugee is despicable. Worse yet,

“When Yusuf went on to demand 6,868 Swiss francs in wages from the cleaning firm, his manager offered him 3,000 francs, but also demanded he retract his complaint.”

But, to counteract the ill will described above, Eat Offbeat will be opening doors for Syrian refugees in New York City’s culinary world. Rachana Rimal, finally finding her footing, talks about her daughter’s aspirations and her own:

“She wants to study law at Columbia, that’s her dream,” Rimal says, “and to be here, earning money doing something I love, is mine.”
