Description

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigated the widespread abuse of young laborers working in America's door-to-door magazine sales trade. This trade relies "on the sweat of traveling crews of young" sales agents. Reporters found that these youths or young adults work in "dangerous sweatshop conditions," have a culture of lawbreaking and routinely deceive customers.
