Marketplace Weekend

5/5/2017: Hours are long and wages are low

There's a shortage of home healthcare workers in this country. This week, we hear from a home health aide on what her job is like, plus we talk to an industry expert about the systemic problems in home healthcare. Then, Marketplace's Dan Gorenstein brings us the latest news on the health care bill and we check in with an Iranian businessman on what work is like during the elections in Iran. Plus, Song Exploder's Hrishikesh Hirway takes the Marketplace Quiz.
