I was recently a guest on The Workers' Voice, a radio show on Indiana Talks hosted by Randy M. Obenchain and Indiana University Kokomo Labor Studies Program associate professor Patrick Hill. You can listen to the show in its entirety by clicking this link. It's under the March 14, 2015 heading:
"The Workers' Voice Hosts sit down with Rob Burgess, columnist and night editor for Kokomo Tribune to discuss topics from income to education to the future of Indiana."
If that link doesn't work I've embedded the audio here:
Here's links to the columns I discussed during this episode:
Last year, the National Low Income Housing Association produced a fascinating and disturbing map. Perhaps you’ve seen it. The representation showed the number of hours per week it would take a minimum-wage worker to afford a two-bedroom apartment in each state.
I also mentioned my co-worker Lauren Slagter's column from Feb. 13, 2015, "Paying-for-college advice doesn't work for everyone."
