The High Stakes Of Amazon's 'One-Click America' : Fresh Air ProPublica journalist Alec MacGillis says a union vote by Amazon workers in Alabama could determine "what life is going to look like for the working class in America in years to come." We talk with MacGillis about how Amazon's size, aggressive business practices and warehouse working conditions are drawing the attention of union organizers and anti-trust crusaders in Congress. His new book is 'Fulfillment: Winning and Losing in One-Click America.'

Also, Kevin Whitehead reviews Erwin Helfer's record 'Celebrate the Journey.'
