A professor at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law has published a book telling the stories of low-wage workers, such as janitors, fry cooks, and health care aides, trying to fight their way to middle-class incomes in Indianapolis. Professor Fran Quigley also writes about the struggles of union organizers with whom he says the workers have found common cause. We’ll hear from Quigley next Tuesday, when he’ll be featured on WFHB’s Interchange, starting at 6 p.m. For today’s WFHB community report, we bring you a conversation with Chalondias Smith, a 66-year-old home health care worker in Indianapolis who will also be featured on Interchange. Smith is a member of the Service Employees International Union.
Interchange host Doug Storm spoke with home health care worker Chalondias Smith of Indianapolis earlier today. Portions of that interview will also be featured on WFHB’s Interchange next Tuesday starting at 6 p.m. Storm will also speak next week with IU law professor Fran Quigley, who has published a book about the struggles of low-wage workers in Indianapolis.
