A Pew study came out showing that moms are now 40% of breadwinners, and conservative "pundits" and politicians starting a #ManPanic, saying working moms are a "catastrophe" making America "mediocre," and more.  Ridiculous!  On this show experts and moms tell the real story about how having moms in the labor force is both a necessity for many families and is also helping our overall economy. We discuss the irony of leaders saying that moms shouldn't work as they also cut programs for hungry kids like SNAP (food stamps), we learn about ways to get access to healthy food, including how to build your own container garden), and more!
