This week, we heard an update from Will Evans, a journalist with the Center for Investigative Reporting.
Though Temp Agencies help workers get back on their feet, Will has written a series of reports focusing on just how common discriminatory practices are. He also filled us in on the birth and death of a bill that was created to combat temp agency discrimination.
