Some massive moves on Wall Street today as investors are in a word...spooked. Meanwhile some changes are coming regarding unemployment benefits and folks are concerned. Speaking of employment we'll be visiting today with Keenan Crow about kids, sports and gender.  It's a story playing out in some 30 U.S. states.  But first, the news:

  • Biden says you must take that job;
  • The link between jobs and the cost of goods;
  • The Dow cratered today and we'll share why;
  • Retirees are mad as hell at Verizon;
  • The Jones Act and fuel is a story;
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • Our ever expanding "unfriendly skies".

Then, for the interview it's Keenan Crow the Director of Policy and Advocacy for One Iowa. We're talking about kids, sports and gender.  As we said earlier this is not only about Iowa because some thirty states are also considering similar moves. What is it all about? What is the business connection? Why does it matter?  All asked and answered. To listen, click this link
