Friday Flight - Rates for Savers Sink Lower, Housing is Hot, and Saving Halloween #258
It's time for a Friday Flight! These episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of Covid-19 on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we are distilling it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to not just weather this health and financial crisis, but to come out on the other side even stronger. In this episode we cover some interesting and helpful stories like companies offering paid time off in order to vote, employers raising minimum wages, Etsy mask sales, Hersey and halloween, a crazy hot housing market, and investing in an IPO. After all of that we discuss why savings account interest rates are low and what to do about it, declining new federal student loans, and effects of a fiduciary rule.
