Timothy, Jeannine P. “Sweatshops in Paradise: A True Story of Slavery in Modern America.” Utah Bar Journal 27.2 (2014): 36-38. Legal Connection. Web. 16 Mar. 2016.
This article is a book review done by the author, Jeannine Timothy. Timothy goes on to talk about a lady named Virginia Lynn Sudbury and how wonderful she is as a person.

In addition, employers rather take the chance of violating labor laws than lose their jobs. I feel like this article will help me a lot considering of the argument I am pursuing. I can get more than enough examples from this.
