This Day in History: Out of Money, Atlanta Offers City Employees I-O-U's

Tomorrow is November 3rd, and if we were to turn Atlanta's clock back 76 years to this date in 1936, we'd find the mayor and City Council passing a resolution authorizing payments to city workers with scrip.

Here, WABE's Steve Goss re-visits the occasion with Georgia State University associate professor of History, Dr. Clifford Kuhn.
