One woman's battle for immigrant workers

Some people are pretty amazing and this woman is one of those people:

Jennifer Gordon, 39 years old has already has embraced challenges ranging from Harvard Law School to Long Island's cruel underground economy to writing and raising small children at home in Brooklyn.

Now a MacArthur Fellow and a Fordham University law professor, she's the author of "Suburban Sweatshops: The Fight for Immigrant Rights" about the Workplace Project, a Long Island immigrant workers' organization she founded in 1992.

The organization, which started as a legal clinic, has collected back wages for countless day laborers, maids, nannies, dishwashers, landscapers and other immigrant workers.
