THE BROOKLYN WAY: Pooch talks with Barclays Center employee as Coronavirus haunts per diem workers

New, comments

Pooch has a podcast!

“That thousand dollars matters for all of us… That goes into day care for kids, paying the bills, getting grocery, maintenance, taking care of your yourself and your family.”

The Corona Virus has pushed us into unchartered waters. Pooch talks the impact it’s had on the NBA and all of the people it trickles down to – from the billionaire owners down to arena staff. He’s joined by a Barclays Center usher who discusses consequences per diem employees may face as we enter a time of uncertainty.

(This episode was recorded hours after news broke about the NBA being postponed. Since then, Nets owner Joe Tsai has committed to compensate per diem Barclays Center staff through May).
