It’s Labor Day Weekend. Do you know who is doing your dirty work?

This is Nikoleta from Bulgaria.

NIKOLETA MAIDAs you head out for your Labor Day weekend holiday, think about the people who are doing the work at the summer resorts all around the U.S. The folks making your meals or cleaning your hotel room might be college students from Bulgaria, Moldova, Albania, Georgia and even Ukraine.  Why are they here? They are trying to make money to pay their tuition and help their struggling families back home. Sometimes they work 2, 3 or even 4 jobs. That’s what The Summer Help documentary is about– the challenges faced by these students as they take their first plane ride and then adjust to life in America as summer workers. At their university in Bulgaria they are future politicians, bankers and journalists. But in America, they are just “the help.” READ the story about why I am making this film and WATCH the trailer and DONATE HERE: bit.ly/TheSummerHelp .
