I chose this photo because it represents what being a middle class person is to me. It represents middle class because being able to travel several times a year on paid vacation is a great benefit of my job. I don’t have a husband or kids, and though young professionals are not often thought about as part of the “middle class”, we really are. This picture is of myself in Miami relaxing on vacation.

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?
