creating jobs

Liberals and conservatives alike are well aware that declining unemployment rate masks the struggles that people are increasingly having in finding good, decent-paying stable employment. The labor participation rate—the percent of people age 16-64 who are employed or looking for work is down to 62.7%, the lowest since early 1978.  The median household income in inflation-adjusted dollars is at its lowest since 1995.

Should entrepreneurship be the 4th R? On August 5, 2012, Marty Nemko will debate that question with his wife and member of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction's cabinet, Dr. Barbara Nemko. To ensure both sides are explored fairly, in the middle of the debate, they'll switch sides.

Plus call in for a three-minute Workover. Marty and Barbara will help solve your career conundrum.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM.
