    On this episode of Queer Money, we discuss the 10-year age range when you’re eligible to start collecting Social Security and explain why you get less if you begin before ‘full retirement age’ or FRA.

    Why LGBT Folks Should Become Trades Workers - Queer Money Ep. 317

    Why LGBT Folks Should Become Trades Workers - Queer Money Ep. 317

    College tuition has gotten obscenely expensive and is putting people into mountains of debt even before they start their careers. And most graduates are not finding jobs with salaries commensurate to the cost of their tuition, so it takes decades to pay off their student loans.
    But college is not your only option. What if you could skip the student loan debt and secure a high-paying job in the trades?
    On this episode of Queer Money®, Morgan Mentzer, Cofounder and Executive Director of Reckoning Trade Project joins us to explain why more LGBT folks should consider becoming trades workers, exploring what it means to work a trade and what jobs are included in the industry.

    This week on Queer Money we are answering a couple of questions for our lesbian listeners. Of course, since we are two cis gay men we didn't feel qualified to answer them. So, we've invited three awesome queer women to join us for a discussion about money issues and questions women in the queer community, specifically lesbians, have.
