Work: Finding a Job and Becoming a Do-Gooder

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

It's Tuesday, our day on The Takeaway to consider how work affects our lives. With millions of Americans scrambling to find work after layoffs, and millions more who will have to work longer because of losses in the stock market, we talk wtih Marci Alboher, Senior Fellow at Civic Ventures about whether it's possible, even in today's competitive job market, to find a job that is meaningful. James Smallwood, a union carpenter and the founder and CEO of the nonprofit The Choice is Yours Inc., says it is possible. He explains how he did it and how his employees are helping to benefit society.
