Special Report: Raiteros - Editors Picks
About this collection
Some of America's best known companies and largest temp agencies benefit from — and tacitly collaborate with — an underworld of labor brokers, known as "raiteros," who charge temp workers fees for transporation and other services. The result? Workers earn pay below minimum wage. We explore the system at work in Chicago’s main Latino neighborhood, Little Village, in this special investigation with ProPublica and the Marketplace Wealth and Poverty Desk.
