When I tell people, particularly older people, that I’m a freelance journalist, I can tell by the look on their face that many are thinking the same thing, though few are bold enough to say it: “What about retirement?” advertisement advertisement I have to admit that question used to give me a lot of anxiety. The reality is that I don’t have a retirement plan, no 401(k), pension plan, or employer-matched contributions. But I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t care—or at least I don’t need to.

Capital & Main is an award-winning publication that reports from California on economic, political, and social issues. advertisement advertisement When U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren rolled out details of her Medicare for All plan at the beginning of November, she didn’t merely answer her fellow Democratic presidential contenders, who were clamoring to know how she proposed to pay for it. Warren also handed a few pages from her playbook to her plan’s real opposition, the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future, a consortium of sometimes disparate health-industry heavyweights, from insurance companies to private hospitals to Big Pharma. Since 2018, the deeply funded and well-organized Partnership, which is headed by Lauren Crawford Shaver, a former Hillary Clinton presidential campaign aide, has spearheaded a wide-ranging media and lobbying effort to defeat any movement toward either a single-payer or public-option healthcare … [Read more...] about How the healthcare industry is working to flatline Medicare for All
Gen X women are the “forgotten middle child” in the workplace, sandwiched between the baby boomers and millennials. Each is twice as large as the gen X workforce, and often twice as vocal about their achievements. advertisement advertisement According to data from the Development Dimensions International and The Conference Board’s Global Leadership Forecast, millennial women show a greater understanding of their future career path as leaders within their organization compared to gen X women. Millennial women leaders are also more likely than their gen X peers to indicate that they are advancing in their careers at an acceptable rate, according to the report. “Gen X women are caught in a ‘no woman’s land’ in the workplace,” says Tacy M. Byham, PhD, CEO of Development Dimensions International, a global leadership consultancy. It’s no surprise that gen X women feel squeezed between two generations. There were only 45 million … [Read more...] about Are Gen X Women Being Squeezed Out Of The Workplace?
