Polygamist communities sent teens to work long hours for low pay
A polygamous sect in Bountiful, B.C. under scrutiny for its treatment of women has used its young men and women as a cheap source of labour, according to court documents and a former church member.
Dozens of young people – some from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints sect in Bountiful but others from the United States – were sent to Sundre, Alta. to work for a post, timber and logging operation.
