October 18, 2015: Better to Work for 40K at a Nonprofit or 80K at a For-Profit?

On the Oct. 18, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, my wife Barbara Nemko and I do a switch-sides-in-the-middle debate on whether it's wiser to work for $40,000 a year at a nonprofit versus $80,000 a year for a for-profit.

Later in the show, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about, we usually can help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday on 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide here on KALW.org.

The show is archived for a week on the NPR site, is available on iTunes, and in perpetuity here at kalw.org
