Episode 3: Who Cuts Your Meat
Juan Ruffin has worked as a butcher at Kroger for 23 years. But this summer, he’s worked harder than he ever has before.
When the shutdown hit, he kept on going in to work as an essential grocery store worker. And when folks had no place else to go, they went shopping.
He talks about masking up, how he’s worked to protect his coworkers as a union steward, and what the Fourth of July and Juneteenth felt like this year while protests filled the streets.
