One Small Step For Migrants

| | Comments (1)
One large step for migrant kind.  Guatemalan newspaper Prensa Libre is reporting that the Federal Trade Commission laid the smack-down on those pesky prepaid calling cards that advertise more minutes than they actually offer.  This is a major victory for migrants whose only connection to their home, sometimes, are these cheap calling cards.  Hopefully this is one less way that migrants will get ripped off in the future.  If you don't read spanish, USA Today also has an article on this.

That's cool, it's about time. I always hate seeing a sentence cut short when the time runs out on a calling card. They're lucky to get 35 minutes out of a $5 card.
