AIR DATE: December 6, 2013

If you are shopping online for Christmas, you have to know that the books, CDs, all those electronic gadgets don't pack and ship themselves. Someone in the warehouse has to make sure the right stuff goes to the right place. And that is a tough line of work.

Gabriel Thompson worked at a San Bernardino electronics warehouse and tells us of his experience.
