Demolition And Rebuilding

Sean Cole brings us the stories of day laborers as they repair homes that were flooded and damaged by Hurricane Sandy.  We meet the men and women who've found demolition and rebuilding work, and one homeowner who makes an effort to provide work to day laborers.

We check in with Linda Archer, a McDonald's employee who's joined an effort to demand a higher hourly wage. Since our last conversation, she's talked with her boss, who tried to explain he can't pay his employees more.
