Media Roundtable: Labor trafficking in the US & the bloodshed in Gaza

May 18, 2018

The new FRONTLINE documentary, Trafficked in America, tells the inside story of Guatemalan teens forced to work against their will on an egg farm in Ohio. On the next Your Call’s weekly media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of labor trafficking in the US.
