July 6, 2018: Hour 2Play
The U.S. Labor Department reports that the unemployment rate has ticked up to 4 percent in June. The economy also added 213,000 jobs, which is higher than expected. We discuss that news, which comes as the trade war between the U.S. and China escalates, with Michael Regan of Bloomberg News. Also, Here & Now's Lisa Mullins talks with author Alissa Quart about her new book "Squeezed: Why Our Families Can't Afford America." And Ray Allen is one of the best basketball shooters of all time. But the retired NBA player has more on his mind than his legacy: he's dedicated to educating himself — and others — about the horrors of the Holocaust. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's July 6, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
