1 Bowe, JohnNobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy
New York Random House 2007 1400062098 / 9781400062096 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First printing. 304 pages. Bibliography, Notes, Index. The author, an award-winning journalist, "exposes the outsourcing, corporate chicanery, immigration fraud, and sleights of hand that allow forced labor to continue in the United States while the rest of us notice nothing but the everyday low price at the checkout counter." Three different workplaces featuring slave labor are described. Underpaid illegal immigrants in Immokalee, Florida, pick produce that supplies such companies as Tropicana and PepsiCo. A company in Tulsa imported workers from India under false pretenses, destroyed their documents and used them to replace American workers. In Saipan, garment factories supplying companies such as Target and Gap employ mostly women who are overworked and underpaid. An important reminder of the dark side of global economic forces. ~~ In clear archival cover.
