Still Working 9 to 5 explores why workplace inequality 40 years later is no longer a laughing matter.[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion style=”modern” color=”white” c_icon=”chevron” active_section=”11111″ css_animation=”lightSpeedIn” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”Trailer” tab_id=”1685205548195-03660e40-de24″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhegtCL26yI”][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column][vc_separator css=”.vc_custom_1622823526650{padding-top: 15px !important;padding-bottom: 15px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeIn”]Late Night, June 16th, 2023 at 11pm
