Men at Work leaving downtown Raleigh after 29 years

VIDEO: For 29 years, Mike Phillips and his crew with Men at Work Car Care Center have been washing cars, waxing hoods and cracking jokes near downtown Raleigh. In 2011, Phillips set up shop at the corner of South Saunders and West South streets, an area remembered for its crime, and worked to transform the neighborhood. Skyrocketing real estate prices means Phillips will move again, this time away from downtown Raleigh. 'I’m sad, of course, but I don’t stay sad long' says Phillips.
