Produced by Neil A. Carousso
NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Capitalism is at work.
On The 880 Weekly Rewind, Lynda Lopez talks to New York Times Economics Reporter Ben Casselman about who is benefiting in the pandemic recovery and if businesses will finally raise wages after years of stagnation as the pace of hiring slows while unemployment benefits in many cases exceed salaries. Casselman said some workers have “leverage” now.
Also on this week’s podcast, WCBS reporter Mack Rosenberg speaks with two CUNY graduates about how they’ve adjusted their career prospects in the pandemic, Naomi Osaka’s French Open withdrawal sparks a conversation on mental health and New York City’s mayoral candidates duke it out a week before early voting in the primaries.
