Crisis of Non-Resident Gujaratis in America: Abuse of Mehsana Worker by Gujarati Employer

Gujaratis aspire to travel to America for better opportunities, and this desire is particularly pronounced among those from North Gujarat. However, the reality of settling in America entails significant adjustments. Foreign travel aspirations can also come with heavy burdens. 

This has been evidenced in a recent incident where a Gujarati youth was subjected to brutality on American soil. Shockingly, the perpetrator of this violence was another member of the Gujarati community. A video has surfaced showing a Gujarati store owner mercilessly beating a Gujarati employee. 

This isn’t an isolated incident; the store owner has reportedly abused the Gujarati employee multiple times over trivial matters, leaving the victim feeling helpless despite earning a mere $2. This disturbing incident highlights the challenges and vulnerabilities faced by Gujaratis seeking a better life in America.

The viral footage captures instances where the employer humiliates and beats the employee while on duty. The store owner, originally from Bhavpura village in Gandhinagar and the employee hailing from Jetalpur in Mehsana, Gujarat, are at the center of intense discussion.

In one footage, the Gujarati store owner is seen physically assaulting and mistreating the employee. Another footage captures the store owner’s wife engaging in abusive behavior towards the same employee. Finally, in a separate incident, the store owner himself is depicted kicking the employee while they are both at work.

It has been reported that the store owner from Bhavpura summoned his relative from Mehsana to join him in the United States under false pretenses. 

The relative was lured with promises of employment, yet no wages were provided. Additionally, the store owner does not provide any form of salary to the employee from Jetalpur. These distressing revelations highlight the gravity of the situation, wherein exploitation and coercion take precedence over familial ties and ethical conduct.
