Migrant workers exploited on Italian farms

Hundreds of fruit pickers from Africa toil for pittance while criminal gangs block efforts to end exploitation.

    They are put to work picking fruit in the country's south, and opposition to their exploitation is often quashed by the mafia.

    Charlie Angela reports from Campania where activists are pushing for better wages and conditions.
