North Gate Radio

December 1st, 2011


In today’s episode we have stories all about jobs. We talk to people who have them, those who changed them, and the politics behind them.

With the economy still weak and the jobless rate hovering around nine percent it can be quite hard to find work these days. We’ll see what’s on the economic horizon from former labor secretary Robert Reich.

We hear from one man who was climbing the ladder to success but then dropped his career to try something entirely different.

And with more and more jobs being created in science and technology we see if science education in California schools is making the grade.

All that and more on this edition of North Gate Radio.
