America Reframed: The Hand That Feeds

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 10:00pm

Filmed at the onset of America’s new service economy wage wars, The Hand That Feeds tells the story of the power struggle that turned a single city block into a battlefield. At a popular bakery café in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, patrons get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. Behind the scenes, some of the undocumented immigrant workers earn far below the minimum wage. America Reframed: The Hand That Feeds airs Saturday, June 25, 2016 at 10 p.m. on WXXI World.
