Where the money from food stamps is actually going
The Trump administration is tightening work requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP or sometimes “food stamps.” The White House says low unemployment should make finding work easy, and the move will save $5.5 billion over the next five years. Today, we follow the money to find out what impacts the move could have. Plus: Twitter’s junk bonds, e-books’ effect on libraries and the unexpected costs that come with treating rare cancers.
Who gets to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange?
We’re partial to “Stormy Weather” and “We’re In the Money,” but there’s one iconic sound that means it’s time to do the numbers: the bell that opens and closes the trading day on Wall Street. Today we take a look at that tradition, who gets to ring the bell and how they do it. Plus: Why batteries are getting cheaper and what the economy will look like in a year if the trade war continues.
Just about everything you own came on a truck
America is short more than 60,000 truckers, and that number is expected to double in the next decade. Today, we talk with a trucker who trains people for the road. Plus, the latest on currency and trade wars, how e-commerce has changed holiday hiring and another shortage Americans are grappling with: not enough access to childcare.
