This week we're looking at the good, the bad and the ugly of work.

We kick off the holiday weekend with a look at the world of work and labor. We'll meet people who toil deep under the city streets to keep Washington running, and hear from a man with a job that hearkens back to a much earlier era. Plus, we'll find out why the local film industry is booming, and chat with the road warriors who brave Washington traffic for a living.
