Zoe Strauss: 10 Years




It's a big discount at Amazon, but I think it's because the workers are working in 110 degree heat in the summer. What I really, really want to do is order my own book from there, specifically the warehouse in Allentown, and see how it gets packed and shipped, how much the workers are paid. I wanted to do that with America too... literally take the route from the printer, get on the ship from China, to the distribution warehouse, to the final destination.
