FROM MY FRIEND, BILL BETZ:
My friend John Bowe will be appearing on the Jon Stewart show tonight to talk about his new book, “Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy.” The book’s focus is on the plight of Mexican and Central American farm workers in Florida, East Indian labor abuse in Tulsa and Asian “guest worker” abuse in Saipan, an American territory in the Pacific Ocean. John is an award-winning (and excellent) writer. The book demonstrates how “globalization” and the labor abuses (i.e., slavery) that result have had the effect of degrading not only foreign workers who are abused in the U.S. but also the character of our society as a whole. It’s important for anyone who cares about the cause of human dignity.
Watch if you have the chance.
