Walter Carr sent his friends a flurry of increasingly pleading text messages. The college student’s car had broken down, and he was supposed to begin his new job as a mover the next morning — at a home 20 miles from his apartment near Birmingham, Ala.
"An Alabama Man Walked Almost 20 Miles to His New Job. When His Boss Found Out, He Gave Him a Car." is from the July 18, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Allison Klein and narrated by Sam Scholl.
