Major U.S. Companies Profit from Exploitative Labor Brokers

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Some of the products you purchase might be manufactured in the U.S., but the workers may not be getting a fair, or legal, wage. A new report by Pro-Publica and Marketplace looks at a system of Latino labor brokerage in cities across the US, a system which provides leading U.S. companies cheap labor whenever they need it, but leaves the workers with wages that are far below legal minimum wage.

Michael Grabell, a reporter for Pro-Publica, and Jeff Tyler, reporter for Marketplace, explain their special investigation.
