Time to whip your budget into shape
Parents often say that school never taught them anything about raising children. The same goes for financial matters. How much class time is ever spent on household budgeting, credit scores, debt management or home ownership? That’s why Workers has partnered with BALANCE, a national firm, to hook members up with expert counselors and free online education programs. You won’t get a diploma for your participation. But you’ll likely be richer for the experience.
