A2: Lemonade Stand

In a piece aired on American Public Media’s Marketplace Money, Michigan Radio’s Jennifer Guerra reports on how an Ann Arbor lemonade stand run by Molly and Lucy Prochaska has been affected by the economy – business is down. The report also interviews Ellen Daniel, who teaches at an Ann Arbor middle school and says that many students have parents who’ve been laid off or had to move out of town for a job: “That whole idea that we’ve moved from an economy where you could be part of a big company and work there your whole career and retire from there. And I don’t think kids see that the same way.” [Source]
