Description

An investigation of the door-to-door magazine subscription business. The article paints a picture of an industry where major publishers profit from the exploitation of young adults who are often trying to escape troubled homes or are fugitives themselves. They travel across the country, often lying to customers in order to sell magazine subscriptions. It's a lifestyle filled with drugs and crime, proving dangerous and sometimes fatal for both the sales agents and the people who answer the door.
