Underreported: The Lives of Migrant Farm Workers
Thursday, September 29, 2011
When we’re in the supermarket, trying to figure out what to cook for dinner, the issues of immigration and migrant laborers usually aren’t on our minds. Yet migrant workers pick much of the produce that ends up on our tables.

Her article "Hecho en América" appears in the October issue of GQ.
