This weekend on Marketplace Money, host Carmen Wong explores the experience of being out of work and knowing your last unemployment benefits payment is on the way. Marketplace reporter Mitchell Hartman joins her to talk about what you can do to prepare – financially and mentally – for more hard times. Also, are women more reluctant to talk about their accomplishments in the workplace? Guests Jessi Smith, a psychologist at Montana State University, and author Peggy Klaus discuss how gender stereotypes affect the earning potential of women when it comes to tooting their own horns on the job. Plus, we look at who’s chipping in to the big pot of money being gambled on the Super Bowl and science writer Mary Roach talks about how her family influenced her financial habits.
