Britain cracks down on illegal nail-salon workers in fight against modern slavery

They may be illegal, but I doubt if they are doing anything other than what most Vietnamese do. They work on commission, so the longer hours they work,  the more money they make. 6 12 hour days is normal with some  6 1/2 and 7 days.

British immigration officers have raided nearly 300 nail salons and arrested 97 people, mostly from Vietnam, for suspected immigration offences as part of a drive to tackle modern slavery, the Home Office said on Wednesday.

"Operation Magnify", a week-long operation concluded earlier this month, was a cross-government drive to stamp out illegal working by targeting specific "risk" industries, said the Home Office, Britain's interior ministry, in a statement.
