Stateside: Monday, May 2, 2022
Today on Stateside, we heard from two groups from different sides of Michigan about how they are responding to the lack of affordable housing. Could a church or an employer make a good landlord and keep housing costs down?
We then heard about the touchy issue of school searches as they crack down on teen vaping.
And we closed the program with a discussion about universal basic income. Did the pandemic unintentionally prove that cash relief works really well?
