June 27, 2018: Hour 2

Starting next month, Chicago will join Seattle in requiring hotels to provide all housekeepers with panic buttons they can use if they are sexually assaulted, harassed or threatened by a guest. We speak with Ely Dar, a hotel housekeeper at the Westin Seattle. Also, the Supreme Court has ruled that nonunion workers cannot be forced to pay fees to public sector unions. We get reaction from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. And, Rebecca Makkai's new novel "The Great Believers" looks at how AIDS not only ravaged the gay community in Chicago in the 1980s and '90s, but continued to impact lives decades later. We speak with Makkai about the book. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's June 27, 2018 full broadcast.
