Keeping your gig

With so many people losing jobs, what are you doing to hold onto yours? Marketplace has heard of folks being forced to take paid vacation days or go on unpaid furlough. Will giving up bonus checks and raises be enough to keep you and your colleagues on the payroll into the new year? Let us know.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
