A note of gratitude for the housekeeping staff at the KUNM studios, May 2020.

Let's Talk New Mexico 5/21, 8a: Keeping our communities and public spaces clean is life-saving work as we fight viral spread. On this week's call-in show, we'll hear from those essential workers about the conditions they face during the pandemic. Do you work in sanitation or on a hospital cleaning crew? Do you clean homes or other businesses for a living? Are you a home health care worker? We want to hear from you about how things are going. Or do you have a special story or gratitude shoutout for someone who cleans the spaces you inhabit? Email LetsTalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show.

GUESTS

  • Journalist Yasmin Khan
  • Mauricio de Segovia from the District 1199 of the National Union of Hospital and Healthcare Employees
