Labor Studies Working Group presents a screening of the award-winning documentary film The Hand That Feeds followed by a discussion with the film's director, Rachel Lears.
About the Film: Shy sandwich-maker, Mahoma Lopez, unites his undocumented immigrant coworkers to fight abusive conditions at a popular New York restaurant chain. The epic power struggle that ensues turns a single city block into a battlefield in America’s new wage wars.

Department of Anthropology,
Department of Sociology, and the
Department of Geography at the Maxwell School and the
