Your Call 100407 Nobodies

What products do you buy that support modern day slavery? On the next Your Call we welcome John Bowe, author of Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy. Slavery was outlawed in the U.S. 142 years ago, but Bowe discovers cases across the continent where people work without rights, without paychecks and without the freedom to leave. Around the world nearly 27 million people are in conditions tantamount to enslavement. Which products are most likely to have been made by slaves? What can you do to join the new abolitionist movement? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.

John Bowe, author of Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy. He is the co-editor of Gig: Americans Talk About Their Jobs, one of Harvard Business Review’s best books of 2000, and a recipient of the Richard J. Margolis Award, dedicated to journalism that combines social concern and humor.

Your Call 100307 On the Record--Bill Richardson

What kind of president would Bill Richardson be? On the next Your Call we continue our On The Record series examining the voting and governing records of every man and woman running for president. This week we look at a former ambassador, cabinet member, congressman and governor. Richardson would be the first Hispanic president and had a reputation as a liberal congressman but was also at the helm of the energy department during the Wen Ho Lee debacle. What did Richardson support, suppress or go out on a limb for? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
