On the February 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the economic realities facing senior citizens.
The number of seniors in the workforce has nearly tripled since the 1970s. A majority of seniors have no pension or retirement savings and half of those who do, have less than $60,800 according to AARP.
Are you or someone in your family in this position? How are you making ends meet? What policies need to change to address this issue?
It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
