The Friday Pitch-In

Sep 11, 2020

Gov. Holcomb says ‘no thanks’ to the president’s Payroll Tax Deferral for state employees. Indiana schools are facing a shortage of substitute teachers. And the Department of Workforce Development will start sending out more additional payments, but many still won’t get the extra federal Lost Wages Assistance money. Today we get updates on these stories and more.

Also, how much more are you disinfecting? Extra chemicals can mean extra residue in your home. We look at new research from Indiana University that compares dust samples taken from homes before and after the pandemic.

Plus, on the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, we talk to the man in charge of the Indiana 9/11 Memorial in downtown Indianapolis.
