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.

Chris Giannou - Understanding the Middle East

Large parts of the Middle East today are engulfed in violence. Why? What historical factors shape the current conflicts? Take Iraq for example, a country in chaos. The U.S. has been intervening in Iraq non-stop for decades. What has it produced? Sectarianism and strife. Death and destruction. Actual U.S. policy in the Middle East is buried in a blizzard of propaganda about democracy and human rights while in practice Washington backs feudal and repressive regimes like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and the Emirates as well as dictatorships like Egypt. Justification for U.S. military bases, invasions and occupations are cloaked in the garb of altruism and noble intent. It’s always been that way for imperial powers.
