Stateside for Tuesday February 5th, 2013

Feb 5, 2013

A new report finds that Americans are less healthy than our international peers. Why are we falling behind? On today’s show, we’ll explore America’s health disparities.  

And, should Michigan recruit more skilled foreign workers? One immigration lawyer in west-Michigan says there aren't enough workers for STEM jobs---those in science, technology, engineering and mathematics---in our state and the country. Are foreign workers really taking these STEM jobs away from Americans?

And, when you hear the term “human trafficking” and let yourself think about what that entails, you might think of it as something that happens overseas, perhaps in exotic places.

You would be very wrong.

Human trafficking happens in the United States, and it is happening right here in the Great Lakes State.

Michigan’s Attorney General Bill Schuette joins us today. He says you can bet that human beings are being sold for profit in our state, and he’s marshaling his resources to fight back against human trafficking.
