21-29 Segment 1: Negotiating The High Cost Of Healthcare

Millions of Americans put off going to a doctor or hospital because they’re afraid of the high cost of care. Depending on your insurance, one MRI scan can cost upwards of a thousand dollars.

Each year, as the flowers bloom and the days turn warmer, we spring forward and adjust our clocks one hour forward.

21-28 Segment 2: A Better Way To Get Away

Everyone deserves relaxation, but is there a way to make sure that you’re traveling more consciously? Are you booking excursions with local, independent companies? Supporting small shops? Does the place you’re staying at or traveling with use sustainable practices?

21-27 Segment 1: Fair Labor: The Importance Of Worker Centers

Unions, which are organized labor groups, are prevalent across the U.S. You’ve probably heard of the term in the media or may know someone who’s part of a union. But, have you ever heard of a worker center? It operates in similar functions as unions; however, this resource is much more community-based and is more of a guiding advocate in responsive situations where the worker is facing harassment, unpaid wages or other issues. We speak with two labor experts this week to highlight how vital worker centers are to low-wage workers who often don’t have a voice.
