The Breadwinner

Beth Finke wrote in to say that due to this recession, for the first time, she is the main breadwinner in her family. Beth has had lots of different jobs, but none were on the fast track. She went blind in her twenties and since then she has had to rely, more than she ever expected to, on her husband, Mike. For years, Beth could only get hired for odd jobs. Gradually, Beth regained confidence and became an accomplished writer. And it was just in time: this summer, Mike lost his job. Beth joins Dick to talk about her pride in finally being the breadwinner.
