“It tells of Walmart employees who spend hours peeling off layers of moldy lettuce before restocking it on the shelves, illegal immigrants with no hope of workers’ compensation and Applebee’s chefs who don’t actually cook anything, since most food is pre-made and then shipped to the restaurant. McMillan can tell these stories because show knows them first-hand — she immersed herself as a migrant worker, Walmart employee and Applebee’s staffer to see for herself how America eats.”
