Standing Up: Tales of Struggle

On this week’s 51%, we speak with lifelong activist and former 9to5 Director Ellen Bravoand her husband, Larry Miller, about their new book Standing Up: Tales of Struggle, based on their personal experiences fighting for unionization and worker’s rights. We’re also saving up: our Dr. Sharon Ufberg speaks with finance guru Anne Lester about how young women can better take advantage of the tools around them to save for their futures.
