PSIP Description: 
Kim Bobo, author of "Wage Theft in America," discusses how employers steal from their employees.
Long Description: 
It is illegal to steal from your workplace; yet across the nation, employers are stealing from their employees every day. Practices such as withholding tips, bouncing paychecks, hiring employees as "independent contractors," and refusing a final paycheck are surprisingly common. Kim Bobo, executive director of Interfaith Worker Justice and author of Wage Theft in America: Why Millions of Americans are Not Getting Paid-and What We Can Do About It, describes the scene. Shirley Hoogstra hosts.
