Over the past seven months, Tanisha Smythe has spent her entire life 
savings, and most of her son’s. She’s on the verge of losing her

Smythe is one of 1,800 former Time Warner Cable employees who have been 
on strike in New York City since 28 March, over a contract dispute with 
Charter Communications.
