Class Of Covid-19: Should I Go To University?2020062020200621 (WS)With job cuts and falling salaries, does going to university still make financial sense?

A look at what is being done to help with the impact of coronavirus on health and finance.

The pandemic has led to job cuts and reduced salaries, so does going to university still make financial sense? And if you took a cut in wages during lockdown but are now back at work, how should you talk to your boss about pay?

Listeners share their stories and get expert advice on managing money in the time of coronavirus, including:

- How to increase your chances of getting a job in the post-pandemic world.

- Whether a change of career is a good idea right now.

- And where you can get financial help if you are struggling to survive.

Plus money for nothing – the arguments for a universal basic income - where everyone is guaranteed a minimum wage without the need to work for it.
