Laborers crammed into
- Nov. 18
David Brancaccio: Welcome to Now.
You know about outsourcing, where better paying jobs in this
country disappear, with the work going to lower wage workers
in developing countries. Well a disturbing variation on the outsourcing
theme is playing out right here in the USA, in New Orleans. Thousands
are being hired to rebuild after the hurricane, but many Louisiana
workers have been left out from getting a job. In many cases,
undocumented workers are moving in, lured by the promise of good
jobs...but many of the jobs have low pay and poor working conditions.
