    I saw the author John Bowe on The Daily Show this past fall He had suprisingly little charisma for someone who wrote a book on such an interesting subject The book is divided into thirds each one focusing on a case of modern slavery in the United States The first takes place in Florida in the tomato and orange grove the second in Tulsa at a steel mill Both of these chapters clearly show the effects of our desire for low cost food and products The third chapter the author travels to Saipan a US commonwealth that is a major player in the garment industry and sex trade His take on what goes on there is much gray He does the math and finds there is a clear reason people travel from China to work or run factories there its profitable His final conclusion is the most intriguing part of the book He points out that the marginalized workers far outnumber us and these people are not educated but they're certainly not stupid and I very much doubt they can be lied to or angered indefinitely In other words who will be first up against the wall when the revolution comes?
