Rick Smith has pretty tirelessly dedicated himself to sticking up for the underdog. He's supported working class dudes and dames as the one true way to assure that there is a safety net for everyone.
But now Rick's had to take a break from his Radio Show and - this teamster's had to take a break from driving - so that he can get a hip replacement.
Because he's a union guy, he's got great healthcare, but because he became a broadcaster to help others - so he's got no paycheck while he's out.
If you got an extra couple of bucks, chip in - help Rick keep the lights on at home until he can go back to work. He's been there for us, we need to be there for him.
PS - his book - "Daddy, What's the Middle Class?" all the proceeds from the publishing of that book has helped other performers - Writers, Artists and Musicians. He's a giver who is probably uncomfortable that we're doing this, but it's time for him to be a getter.
