Today on Your Call: What’s in store for the future of US economy?


On today’s Your Call, our last show of the year, we’ll have a conversation about the state of US. According to the Commerce Department, broad-based economic growth might lead to a healthier labor market, but with millions of people out of work and income inequality at all time highs, what does economic growth even mean? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
