Working Hard for the Money
Every day, thousands of employers take advantage of undocumented immigrants who often work grueling hours for very little pay. Many of these immigrants feel they cannot speak up against ‘the man’ for fear of retaliation, or worse – being turned in to authorities and getting deported.

Would they stand their ground and defend an unknown person’s basic human rights, or would they turn the other way?
What happens might surprise you. Let’s just say, we were giving virtual high-fives and holding back some major waterworks.
