Nov. 2, 2007: "The Low-Wage Worker: Legal Rights—Legal Realities" Minnesota Law Review
On Nov. 2, 2007, Minnesota Law Review will be hosting its annual symposium, which this year is entitled: The Low-Wage Worker: Legal Rights—Legal Realities. The registration page, as well as a list of participants, is available here.
As a somewhat related aside, I am now reading Charles Fishman's The Wal-Mart Effect (2006) and recommend it for those who want to read something about Wal-Mart or Wal-Mart's troubles with employees/suppliers that is a fast, enjoyable read. The author's website, with excerpts and links to reviews, is here. A blog review with some interesting facts from the book is available here. You can also read Sam Walton's Autobiography (I have skimmed it but like Fishman's book better--though Walton does include great photos from showing the rise of Wal-Mart)... Finally, I believe Conn. L. Rev. did a symposium on Wal-Mart but they are redoing their website so I cannot link to it right now.
