100 hours of work a week and standing in line for food. One year into the pandemic with Home Health Care Worker with Hillary Rothrock, Sam, and Dwayne.

We mark a year since the pandemic began wit special guest Hillary Rothrock, a home healthcare worker, union leader, single mom, and excellent guest. She recently led a “Fast for $15” with other comrades to draw attention to how our most “essential workers” are shockingly horribly underpaid.
