Where do you go job-wise when your previous position was press secretary to the president of the United States? Today, we ask someone who knows, Kansas City native and former Obama staffer Josh Earnest. Then, activist organizations pushing to improve conditions for low-wage workers face a unique challenge: Getting folks who can ill-afford time off to show up for a protest. We'll find out how groups like Stand Up KC are overcoming that hurdle.
Josh Earnest fields audience questions at an event hosted by the Cockefair Chair Foundation in Pierson Auditorium on the UMKC campus at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 7. The event is sold out, but guests without reservations can wait in line for open seats. Go to info.UMKC.edu for more information.
