FILE - In this April 1, 2020 file photo, a closed sign is displayed outside a Salvation Army store and donation center in Glenview, Ill. Across the country, drug and alcohol recovery programs claiming to help the poor and the desperate are instead conscripting them into forms of indentured servitude, requiring them to work without pay or for pennies on the dollar, in exchange for their stay. For the first time, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting has determined how widespread these programs have become. In 1990, in response to a complaint from a former participant, the Labor Department launched an investigation into the nations largest chain of work-based rehabs, The Salvation Army, which operates about 100 programs across the country. At The Salvation Armys rehabs, participants were required to work full time processing donations for the organizations thrift stores, receiving a stipend of only $5 to $20 a week. The department found The Salvation Army had violated labor laws and ordered the nonprofit to pay its participants minimum wage. The Salvation Army refused to comply. It sued, then enlisted members of Congress to defend the venerable charity. Within a month, the department backed off.(AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)
