And the following message come from the UPS store, offering services from shredding to printing to mailbox seeing, and instead of closing this Memorial Day weekend may twenty fourth and twenty fifth. The UPS store is doing another thing altogether. Opening the UPS store every anger for small business, and of course shipping. The jobless rate in the United States is at a near fifty year low. So all this month NPR's looking at what that means for workers, and communities, many African Americans are seeing an opportunity for better jobs and cheap housing in the south and Charlotte, North Carolina is one of their destinations NPR's Danielle Czeslaw reports, Britney Smith shows me around the house. She and her husband bought on the outskirts of Charlotte. Here. Washer dryer your standard. It's beige house with brick facade. There's a front porch and a two car garage and a green front lawn. She holds her fifteen month old daughter, Erla Smith grew up, mostly in Detroit, six years ago. She struggled to find a fulltime job in healthcare. They're her then boyfriend Sam was a career counselor at a college campus, that was closing. We're looking at what cities are growing for young professionals in Charlotte was always in the top five, it helped that Smith's father had moved back to North Carolina about two hours away from Charlotte. So they made the move. We did have the idea. If you know, we may go down here for a year. We don't like it, then we can always go home, this Smith's are part of an influx of African Americans to Mecklenburg county North Carolina. The African American population here has ballooned by sixty four percent since two thousand some people come from neighboring counties in north and South Carolina. But thousands are coming from Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey in Illinois, and other cities in the south are seeing similar growth, including Houston, Atlanta Tallahassee and Columbia South Carolina Smith. Thirty two is about to begin a new job at a health insurance company doing community outreach. He starts Monday actually so very quick turnaround. But yet starts Monday her previous job was similar it was a dream job. She says, but the new position pays better and has more responsibility. Sam now her husband found work in Charlotte to as a university career, counselor opportunities for black folks, the south, and that have never been in the same sentence. Demographer Jessica baron endure North Carolina says throughout much of the twentieth century millions of African Americans left the south to escape racial discrimination, and lack of opportunity that Hobie got the Harlem renaissance and Chicago blues. These are all a part of the story of the great. Gration as manufacturing dried up in the rust belt services tech and finance expanded in southern cities, African Americans started coming back, Barron says migrants tend to have higher education and more connections than African Americans who remained in places like North Carolina for generations. The job market for African Americans over the past two years is the best ever unemployment is at six point seven percent. Although it's double the rate for whites Charlotte, in particular, is booming the city has seen eight straight years of job growth, but as the tide has risen here, it has not lifted all boats equally. Charlotte historian Tom Hinchey, it says decades of segregation and redlining have given African Americans in Charlotte, fewer opportunities to buy homes and build wealth. Affordable housing is especially an issue for African Americans. It requires special effort to overcome it because special effort created and in Charlotte. Many. African Americans work in industries, like hospitality and retail where wages have stagnated that mirrors the national trend where wages have grown more slowly for African Americans than any other group. I meet, Nicole muse. Dennis at one of two jobs. She works as bar manager at night and a special education teacher during the day. I'm what I call over employed. I have two jobs and I'm still trying to make us. Dennis says raising two daughters as a single mom on a teacher salary, has forced her into a sixty five hour workweek a couple days later. I join her morning routine flushing, it's still dark as she gets ready to drive her daughter to school hard, part is just make sure I get up actually I get up in the morning. That's the hard part.

I have an education insane from a husband, but also it made me actually my husband and I had to look at ways that we can help bridge, the gap the structural issues that keep many African Americans unemployed or underpaid are difficult to fix but a strong economy opens more paths to success.

Find out how you MD can start up your next adventure at you and you MD dot com. That's why oh you and you MD dot com. The US job market. Sounds amazing right now with unemployment around three point six percent. But what's it feel like to be in that market all this week? We're asking what this economy means for people looking for a job or looking for a better job, or looking for a raise wages are rising and some people who'd given up seeking work at all or coming back, yet, some old economic divides have persisted NPR's, Scott Horsely spoke with David green. So how tight is this tight labor market right now? It is tight across the country, but is really tight in some places on my NPR colleague, Jim zarroli is going to take us to Ames, Iowa, which has the nation's lowest unemployment rate. It's just one and a half percent. And that means people like restaurant manager Elizabeth Kopetski really struggle to find and keep good help. We lashed your head a call from a restaurant down the street, asking if we had an extra staff that they could share. That's how bad it's getting. What did you tell them? We didn't have enough ourselves even though wages have been going up in Ames. They still have trouble attracting workers. There just aren't a lot of people moving to I'll despite the healthy job market. We did find though, people are moving to opera -tunities in other parts of the country, like where we're the opportunities right now. People are moving to places like Atlanta Tallahassee and Charlotte, North Carolina. We've seen an influx of workers from up north, looking for better jobs and also for more affordable housing in particular, a lot of African Americans are making this move sort of the reversal of the great migration. We saw in the last century NPR's Danielle Czeslaw spent some time talking with African American workers in North Carolina, both newcomers and some longtime residents, like Nicole muse Dennis, she's a single mother of two who says she's working. Fifty five hours a week and just barely getting by. I'm what I call over employed. I have two jobs and I'm still trying to make it unemployment. Among African Americans David is six point seven percent. That is low by historical standards. But it's still nearly double the national average. Well, Scott, we've been talking about full employment for a while and yet every month employers are finding more people to hire. So what exactly is happening? Give me the broad. Look here. One thing that's happened is that people who had been out of the job market altogether, either by choice or otherwise are being lured back in. We have a number of stories in our series about, for example, women coming back in the job market. Sometimes fulltime sometimes in the gig economy and other groups that were sort of on the margins, for example, people with disabilities or a prison record those might have been disqualifying in the past, but desperate employers Christopher Dickerson say, not anymore. I don't care what your background is. I don't care where you came from care, what color you are care as long as you. Come to work every single day. Give me everything. That's gimme over the last couple of years. David about seven and ten new people. Finding jobs have been coming off the sidelines, rather than from the ranks of the unemployed, what is all of this mean for people's paychecks? I mean for a while we kept talking about even though the economy was seemed to be doing better and better wages. Weren't really keeping pace with inflation yet for a lot of this very long economic expansion wages did not go up very much, but they are finally picking up and that's especially true for people on the lower rungs of the income ladder, which is encouraging, there is no question, workers have more bargaining power now. And one of the things we looked at in the series is collective bargaining during the recession some unions, grudgingly, agreed to accept lower wages for newer workers, and that created some friction on the factory floor, when people were doing the same job for less money. We're finally starting to see some of that turnaround. I spoke with Courtney herring who works at the Kohler company in Wisconsin. They recently inked a new contract that phases out. That two tiered wage scale you could tell there was a lot of happy, people, a lot of them production went up people are wanting to stay for more overtime because they know it's worth their time now. So they're actually able to go out and do more things or save up for something or one of the voices in our full employment series, which is taking place. All this week on the radio, you can also find it at NPR dot Oregon. You'll hear more on this program tomorrow, been talking with NPR's, Scott Horsely. Thanks. Got. You're

There are more mobile payment apps than ever Zell Apple Pay square cash, but just one doubles as a social network NPR's. Danielle Czeslaw explains how VIN MO has changed relationships when copywriter Kelly Johnson moved to Los Angeles. She didn't tell her parents she'd be living with her boyfriend Johnson grew up in Bakersfield a couple hours drive north very conservative, very religious, my parents as well in LA. She pays the rent and her boyfriend chips in his half on ven mo- when he did it. He put it in the memo line the month, plus like the little house emoji. And that's how my mom saw her. Mom, uses Motoo Johnson was busted I shared that story with Richard krone a payments expert. That reinforces our findings the number one use case is paying rent. He estimates about thirty nine million people use then MO which is owned by PayPal. The company didn't confirm. Here's how it works. You use motive pay request money from other people on the app. It's usually linked to your Bank account every transaction has a memo line, and there are emoji for things you pay for like pizza or wine or rent, but these memos and emojis are public by default. So you can see how your friends spend money, and what they're asking others to pay for krone says that visibility can be a perk. You wanna pay it socially?

Your friends nineteen billion dollars changed hands over the app just between October and December of last year. That's up eighty percent from the previous year. Not everyone knows others are seeing their payments. The Federal Trade Commission last year demanded that Venema make it clear to customers that these transactions are public. Then MO says, it never posts the amount of the transaction and anyone can make their payments, private private or not the app has made it easy to give cash instantly. We heard from a woman in Baltimore. She picked up a three hundred fifty dollars grocery Bill for a friend who forgot her wallet. But then mode the money immediately. A man in San Francisco told us he then MOS birthday money to his friends for round of drinks.

Matthew, Masud studies aerospace engineering at the university of Cincinnati. He says via Skype that he went out to dinner at a restaurant that wouldn't split the check. So he just paid for.
