Ways To Subscribe

If you live in California, you know it is expensive to live here, but did you know that more than one in three households in California do not earn sufficient income to meet even their basic needs? United Ways of California, in partnership with California’s 29 local United Ways has recently released a new study that discusses what it really takes to make ends meet in California.

Join Mario Espinoza-Kulick as he speaks with guests Doug Yeiser, Interim CEO with the United Way of San Luis Obispo County, and Henry Gascon, Director of Program and Policy Development with the United Ways of California. They will discuss their recently released study, How Much it Costs to Struggle: The Real Cost Measure in California 2023, with data specific to what it really costs to live on the Central Coast.

You are invited to listen, learn, and participate in the conversation today, Thursday, between 1-2 p.m. Call in and be part of the discussion at (805) 549-8855.
