Main Street, Findlay, Ohio (Episode #315H)

KQED 9: Fri, Apr 12, 2013 -- 10:30 PM

John Larson travels to Ohio to assess how workers are faring after the loss of millions of manufacturing jobs over the past 35 years. Findlay - a town in northeastern Ohio with a population of just over 40,000 - is bucking a trend: the town is now gaining factory jobs after years of losing them. What are these new manufacturing jobs? And what will these new opportunities mean for wages, unions, new workers and the middle class? This week's report is the fourth in our series "Main Street" series. Maria Hinojosa anchors.

Episode #314H

KQED 9: Fri, Apr 5, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

NTK examines how behavioral economics is being utilized to encourage low-income workers to save. Correspondent William Brangham reports from Vermont how workers who have repaid emergency loans through automatic paycheck deductions continue to take the lower amount in their paychecks and save the difference after the loan is paid off. Correspondent Brian Epstein reports about a plan devised by Mayor Michael Bloomberg that offers incentives to low-wage earners who save their tax refunds. The "American Voices" essay is by Dan Ariely, professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University. Maria Hinojosa anchors.
