Labor Day Discussion: how much money do you need right now to get out of debt?

The 15th Annual Job Gap Report by the Alliance for a Just Society shows that a $15 minimum wage is not enough to keep the average worker out of poverty. In honor of Labor Day, guest host Lisa Loving asks: What is your job? How much are you earning? And how much money do you need right now to get out of debt?
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
The average single resident of Oregon or Washington actually needs to make almost $16 an hour to stay out of poverty -- almost twice Oregon's minimum wage of $9.10 an hour. 

While the campaign for a $15 minimum wage takes root across the country, a new report underscores just how meager that wage really is for families.

Enough Is Enough: A Community's Response to Violence

Short Description: 
Community seeks to bring those affected by violence together for healing, support and strength
This Monday on More Talk Radio hear the collective call that says "Enough Is Enough" as Portlanders take a stand to end the violence stealing our family members.
Often these senseless deaths are one or two witnesses away from justice. Yet no one will step forward to speak the truth, allowing the killers to hold our community hostage through our silence. Families are devastated by this loss and ongoing lack of closure. Witnesses may be devastated by a sense of helplessness.
As a reply that says the community does not condone violence or the silence, "Enough Is Enough", a community led effort, seeks to bring those affected by this violence together for healing, support and strength.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Bruce Jacobs, author of Race Manners about how to talk to each other in this new era of race relations. RACE MANNERS is a weapon for all people of good will.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
