Housing is pay, both legally and morally in fact. It is even considered income by the IRS. I'm not sure I see why you use the word "dock" their "pay" when in fact it is "pay".
Could you explain why company provided housing is not pay??????? Why would any rational person complain about getting company housing as part of their pay if they need it? Sour grapes? Irrationality? Certainly not for any credible reason. Of course there are always those that think the world owes them a living who suck at the teat of the government trough and parrot whatever they are told to say as long as they get money they did not earn.

honestly though, what the hell do you people expect? what country do you think you are in? the mythical "land of the free"? or is this capitalism? im tellin you, capitalism and freedom do not go together,
Economic freedom, or the ability to choose how to consume your wealth, is the backbone of true capitalism. What you describe amounts to trampling on economical rights for the sake of political rights. You don't have political rights without first having established economical rights. Free-market Capitalism is the very expression of economical freedom.
The only thing I see wrong with this video is the recruitment of people from different countries at the tax payer's expense.

So let me get this straight.
These kids come from a foreign nation and pay their way here. They get an appartment to live in and the freedom to take classes at US schools and shop at US stores and send what ever they want home and in return they are asked to only work 40 hours a week and pay for the apartment.
MY GOD THATS SLAVERY!
WHO could DARE ask someone to actually work for FORTY hours on TWELVE hour shifts doing manual labor? GOD the HUMANITY! Its virtual sweet shop, oh wait SWEAT shop!
AND PAY FOR THEIR LIVING SPACE
Those poor children were practically chained to those machines!
Grow the hell up. In highschool I worked for less money 32 hours a week with no benefits after I did 8 hours a day at school. You dont live on minimum wage its there for entry level jobs to provide folks a way of earning their place in a company and working their way up. Its not there to raise a family.

Socialism can only work on the back of slave labor, then. All you're doing is replacing private businesses with the collective. Don't you know what happens to the minority under the rule of the majority?
