Hundreds of employees of the Bayou Steel plant in LaPlace, Louisiana, learned this week that they will be losing their jobs because the plant is closing at the end of November. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said the company was "particularly vulnerable to tariffs" because it relies on mostly imported, recycled scrap metal. Also, in 2016, the first "City of Women" map was designed to reimagine public space by naming each subway stop after a famous woman. Host Tonya Mosley talks to one of the creators about the map's new update to include Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cardi B. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's October 4, 2019 full broadcast.
