name, john lewis was one of the key leaders of the civil rights movement. >> i had been deeply inspired by martin luther king, jr. and wanted to get involved. >> reporter: so at 17, a scholarship student at the american baptist theological seminary in nashville tennessee, john lewis joined with a small group of young people dedicated to nonviolent protest. they became known at the sit in kids. their mission: to desegregate lunch counters and movie theaters in nashville. >> it was the first big story i ever covered. these young people were my heros. i watched them from that day in february 1906 and thought they were doing something historic. >> reporter: the late pches winning author david halberstam spent years documenting the story of the young people that changed history. >> . there was so so unshakeable

7:30 am
seemed invasive a few months ago are likely to become common. >> new procedures at cbs require that before employees go in their office they use their cell phone to connect with a nurse and then take their own temperature and show the nurse they don't have a fever. other companies are doing the same and more. >> look, the privacy considerations are so vivid. we have had the ability for a long time to track where staff are. are they in the office? are they at home? are they on a trip somewhere? on a private vacation? that was all possible before. but it never made enough sense to the people and the companies that it would be a deal worth making. >> i think a lot of companies are going to propose that deal and decide is this worth it for me? >> the value of returning to the office is a calculation both workers and employers are beginning to make. >> managers have learned two things. a lot of what they've learned is how much work can be done

7:36 am
world. but lest anyone chalk it up as a publicity stunt, it's more to people than that. >> it's been a godsend. i can buy things i couldn't buy because, like i said, i was scrapping for any work i could get. i was barely able to buy food. >> when we caught up with her, larie mahlenbrei was buying groceries with her wooden money but also could have paid her water bill with it, gotten her prescriptions filled in or had a tasty meal at don juan's mexican kitchen. >> as humans when stuff like this happens we go in survival comoavd start thinking, ok, these are my expenses, can i dine out? probably not. >> marcella martinez's family owns don juan's. >> i think this money has allowed people to have that. and even people who -- people who need to have their groceries and couldn't afford it. i think this wooden money really
7:37 am
helps them. >> the money also help's tenino's businesses when they redeem the bills with city halls for regular cash. >> with all of the attention the money is getting, each bill is numbered, signed and features a rough latin translation of the phrase "we've got this handled." collectors have been reaching out, hoping to get their hands on some. >> that is incredible. but good luck getting laurie mahlenbrei's share. >> i have actually been offered up to $300 for it but i won't sell it. first of all, it's meant to be here in the community, stay in the community. it was meant for a boost for us and for the businesses. second of all it's too much fun spending it. associates doing their best to keep our nation going. because despite everything that's changed, one thing hasn't and that's our devotion to you
