Here's the article mentioned at the beginning of the diavlog: I Was a Warehouse Wage Slave (Mar/Apr 2012 issue). Previous writing on that topic from Mac includes:
- Blog post: Pity the Elf Slaves of Online Shipping (Dec 2011)
- Blog post: A Visit to the Warehouse of Soul-Crushing Sadness (Jul 2011)
- Article: Ohio's War on the Middle Class (Nov/Dec 2011 issue)
Mac McClelland previously appeared on Bloggingheads to discuss what she learned in Burma and Haiti. She also wrote a book about her time in Burma. She has reported from numerous other countries and is currently the human rights reporter for Mother Jones.
