Sasha Abramsky, a frequent Mother Jones writer and the author of Breadline USA: The Hidden Scandal of American Hunger and How to Fix It, went on GRITtv with Laura Flanders Monday to talk about hunger and homelessness in the US. Joining him on a larger panel was Aubretia Edick, the Wal-Mart employee he wrote about here.
