On March 26, 2009 the state of Wisconsin passed the most powerful regulatory door-to-door solicitation legislation in the country. The SB-4 legislation named after an 18 year old girl (Malinda Turvey) who was killed along with six other young kids while selling magazines door-to-door in Wisconsin on March 25, 1999, 'Malinda's Traveling Sales Crew Protection Act' will become active on April 10, 2010.

Want to see an exclusive GLIMPSE of what life on a mag crew is like?
watch this amazingly well written short film to see only a fraction of
what these victims go through ... then tell us what you think or how it impacted you!

***This film is for mature audiences only due to violent content and brief nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.***

This is a short film I found online that gives a brief glimpse into the world of a traveling magazine sales crew. A lot of young adults out there answer job ads for these positions, but have no idea of what they are getting into. I'm not saying all sales crews are bad, just before a person decides to embark into this field they should do their due diligence and research the matter further.

"Mag Crew is a short film about three young adults who embark on a journey of survival selling magazines door-to-door but realize the promise of money is not worth their freedom. Ethan, Addison and Levi are members of a magazine sales crew that travels between towns in a van with other young sales people and their crew leader Joe. On this day, each of the three learns something about themselves that causes them to want to regain their true identity and question their participation in the Mag Crew. From Writer/Director Andrew McMennamy and Producer Blayne Vixie this gritty true to life tale is not one to be missed." Watch YouTube Story
