In this episode, Leif Utne speaks with Bryan Welch, publisher of Utne Reader and author of the March/April cover story titled “Putting a Stop to Slave Labor.” Welch calls our reliance on illegal immigrant labor the moral equivalent of slavery, and proposes what he considers both a moral and feasible response to the crisis. And contributing editor Joe Hart is back with a review of the new album from country folk singer Chris Knight.
