YUEI: Plan B

Submissions to our Uncommon Economic Indicator project have highlighted the way in which many New Yorkers are turning to second jobs, freelance gigs, and other fallback plans. Writer Caitlin Kelly recently took a part-time job, and thinks that Plan B can offer lots of new experiences and lessons. Plus, Brian Lehrer Show listener Amanda Joyce, who posted to the UEI site, talks about how she went to plan B, but by choice: she recently quit her job. What do you think? Have you had to turn to your back-up plans recently? Comment below!
