#1757: Bridging the Gap | 51%

On this week’s 51%, we take a look at the gender pay gap in the U.S., and speak with America Saves Director Kia McCallister-Young to learn how you can come up with a savings plan that fits your needs and leaves you feeling financially confident – no matter what life throws at you. We also learn about historic labor leader Kate Mullany, who founded the nation’s first all-female labor union, and take a tour of the Kate Mullany House in Troy, New York.

Guest: Kia McCallister-Young, director of America Saves
