According to a new Associated Press investigation, workers from Myanmar are being brought to Indonesia under the promises of a job, only to end up enslaved aboard illegal fishing boats. Their catch may be finding its way into the supply chains of major U.S. grocery stores like Safeway and Albertsons. We'll talk about the humanitarian and environmental impacts of these illegal operations, as well as ways to avoid buying slave-caught seafood.
