Playlist: A focus on jobs
Posted by Matt Berger
For Marketplace, Friday, September 3, 2010
With the official jobs report out, we looked at how long-term unemployment is redirecting many Americans’ life choices, and whether a payroll tax cut will result in more jobs. We also had stories on how the food price surge may not lead to chaos, lessons learned from the Gulf oil spill, Verizon’s pay-as-you-go plans for many of the smartphones it offers, fashion going high-tech, and Kai Ryssdal gives a little morsel on the best and worst of fast food. If you’re hungry for our songs, here’s the music we played:
- Southern Girl — MazeBuy
- Stay By Me — Annie LennoxBuy
- R U Listenin’? — Illa JBuy
- Brother Lee — Citizen CopeBuy
- Call Me — BlondieBuy
- Portofino — Teengirl FantasyBuy
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
