Race, Gender and Work: Lola Smallwood-Cuevas and Domestic Workers United

Lola Smallwood-Cuevas talks about her work with the Black Workers Center.

“The Laura Flanders Show” is in Los Angeles talking about women and work. Lola Smallwood-Cuevas speaks about her work with the Black Workers Center, and we visit with domestic workers who marched to Washington to meet with the pope. All that and a few words from Laura on the surprisingly low cost emergency that can throw almost half of all Americans into a crisis.
