This final note, on the way out today.
For decades now, Butterball has had what it calls the “Turkey Talk-Line.” It’s a toll-free number that’s up and running in November and December.
Every year, tens of thousands of Americans call in to talk to one of 50 “professionally trained, college-educated home economists and nutritionists.” All of whom have been women.
This year, that’ll change. It’s hiring its first male spokesman.
The only requirement: “You have to want to help people.”
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.
In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
