Fast food and other workers from across Midtown joined a nationwide rally on tax day, calling for higher wages and a union to represent their interests. In addition, home health workers told their stories and we met a fast food worker struggling to raise eight children.

City planners have set meetings to unveil the draft Midtown/Plaza area plan, a set of guidelines and strategies for development, housing, neighborhoods, economic development, transportation, capital improvements, open spaces and urban design.

At the Nelson-Atkins Museum, workers spent the week installing large “portrait busts,” the work of Philip Haas, a contemporary artist and filmmaker.
