Katrina Uncovers: Exploited Workers and Endangered Wetlands

On this edition, we hear from migrant workers helping to clean up and
rebuild New Orleans and about their struggle for better wages and working
conditions. We also hear from one organization fighting on their behalf.

Then, we visit the bayou of Louisiana where we meet with locals trying to
preserve the wetlands as a natural barrier against hurricanes.

Featuring:
Israel Mijares, migrant worker; JJ Rosenbaum, staff attorney, Southern
Poverty Law Center's Immigrant Justice Project; Albert Pellegrin, tour
guide; Bill Munson, owner, Munson Swamp Tours.

Hosts: Tena Rubio and Justin Beck
