United Way Report Gives Local Economic Outlook [VIDEO]
Bruce Willson and Rashida Dawson of the United Way of Northwest Louisiana talk with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about that organization's ALICE Report, a look at local employment and their economic outlook for our region.
ALICE - Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed - according to the United Way "represents community members working in jobs that are needed, but don’t always pay enough to afford the basics, such as cashiers, child care workers, food service personnel, home health aides, librarians, bank tellers, repair technicians, landscapers and more. ALICE makes up men and women of all ages and races. ALICE is customers, constituents, neighbors – even family members and friends. ALICE is sometimes even referred to as the 'working poor.'"
