Playlist: The new normal of unemployment

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Wednesday, September 7, 2011

On today's show, we heard about the new normal in today's economic climate, how to deal with it and what its long-term impact will be. More and more people are finding themselves falling into contract work. The struggling Yahoo fired its CEO. A new statistic shows that 15% of Americans go hungry. Texas continues to battle devastating fires. And continuing our series on the impact of 9/11, we took a look at how that event has changed disaster preparation. Here are the songs we played:

  • Strange Chemistry - Sackcloth FashionBuy
  • Be First - KabooseBuy
  • Tight Eyes - Nicolay & KayBuy
  • Young + Restless - D-TensionBuy
