In A Day's Work

Aug 23, 2018

Thursday, we’re talking about sexual violence against undocumented laborers. Journalist Bernice Yeung joins Andrew Becker to explain their struggle for justice in the age of the #metoo movement.

Thursday, we’re talking about an overlooked corner of the #metoo movement. Journalist Bernice Yeung has a new book that exposes the sexual violence against America’s most vulnerable workers. Women in low-wage jobs, often undocumented immigrants, tell horrific stories of workplace abuse and harassment, but they have little protection or recourse against their attackers. Yeung joins guest host Andrew Becker to talk about the system that failed these women and how they are making their voices heard.

Bernice Yeung is a reporter with ProPublica, a non-profit investigative news organization. Her book is based on reporting she did for Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting. It's called In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers. [Indie bookstores|Amazon]
