I really like levi's jeans and they have a lot more selection action online. As far as the styles go. She recently ordered three different pairs of levi's to weren't right so she sent them back and she was curious. What happened to those jeans after she returned them. Where does it end up. Does it get resold. Does it get trashed. What's the life of this returned merchandise. Williams guesses are on the great track.

Thanks for your help. You're supposed to tip your house cleaner write about kicking into their disability insurance from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy on jed Kim in for. Molly would. Some might consider domestic employees the original gig workers. There are a lot of similarities like intermittent income, and no real safety net is a problem that affects millions of workers like nannies caregivers and housecleaners the national domestic workers Lance is trying to change this. There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits. Like paid time off she pulls up the website on her phone Huma Boya plataforma. The leeann is the Mittel me contra Sania, she logs in chooses the worker option and sees a total dollar amount. It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts. Didn't they eat thing goals will they be their Mahy is taken out life insurance and accident insurance. She also took to pay days off. Here's how bad stun when a worker reaches one hundred twenty dollars on a Lia. They can trade it in for a prepaid visa card like a lot of financial tech tools. Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions. Putting it all in one place, and allowing for the worker to be able to draw down those benefits, and it gives clients a more formal way to contribute to benefits Mahia is already comfortable communicating virtually she rarely sees her clients. She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah. But then she thought about all the other types of workers who get benefits oughta Mattingly. You don't think benefits you one the toll moon, though, that I don't know if you've seen us, they a whole ISM benefits us. She thought why not me, but you'll notice way at the net. The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber. There've been several other settlements for the company, but none that would seem to break the Bank after all we're is expecting to be valued at one hundred twenty billion dollars. I'm jed Kim.

And it turns out there is a whole lot of joyless stuff out there. Thrift stores are reporting record breaking donations. But purchase on the scale of what kinda was talking about can be challenging and expensive for people who live in big cities because it's not like they can just stick stuff down in the basement or up in the attic, most of them. Right. So for city folk who choose to tidy up where does their stuff go and who pays to get it there? Marketplace's Lila Goldstein reports it's nearing midnight.

How may I help you get two bags of clothes? The Salvation Army is among a handful of charities that will actually come and pick up used clothes and even furniture, and it's a huge operation in a massive midtown warehouse. There are metal carts filled with donation bags wooden pallets top with stacks of TV's and a row of at least ten mattresses a fleet of trucks comes and goes five days a week. Fred news has been with the Salvation Army for over thirty years expensive to keep a fleet going and employees. And all the wear and tear on the trucks twenty trucks twenty paid drivers. Plus dispatchers and warehouse staff parking tickets alone cost about three thousand dollars a month. Then here we are picking up. Somebody's television that we may be able to put into our store and get fifty bucks for he says, the higher value donations end up making pickups, but some items simply can't be sold at all. We've gotten caskets. Prosthetic limbs we gotta ashes one time. Somebody's ashes I just reached over and saw this machete. So we get it. All yeah. Someone donated an actual machete other unusable sit on a heap on the loading dock. The Salvation Army has two additional dump trucks just to haul that joyless junk away.

That's indeed dot com slash marketplace. Gift cards, the gift that keeps on look it's Christmas Eve, and it's easy in Washington DC, I'm Sabri Benesch or in for David Brancaccio. Last week was the worst week for the Dow since two thousand eight the NASDAQ is officially in a bear market. And that has clearly sparked concerns and tweets from the White House. And there is a lot to cover here. Julia Coronado is founder of macropolicy perspectives. Good morning. Good morning. Okay. So I there were reports that the president was enquiring about firing the fed chair. What was the reaction to that prospect among economists and traders, well that is something that certainly economists and markets would not take the well that would certainly suggest that the fed is no longer politically independent no longer making decisions based on what's right for the economy, but will be politically beholden and that. Suggests that a very important institution underpinning US markets is at risk. So that is not good news. No purchase sectors. Steve Mnuchin tweeted on behalf of the president saying that he the president did not suggest firing the fed chair. And that he didn't think they had the authority to do that. Do you think that is going to come fierce not really the fact that the president who we have seen do many previously unheard of things? And the fact that he is contemplating this alone is going to be it's on the table now. And so I don't think that tweet was particularly reassuring. Well, there was more tweets then the secretary announced just last night that he had met with the heads of bunch of major banks, and that these major banks had no problem with the quality. No problems lending to consumers or businesses. Was anyone worried that that was the case? Why is he bringing that up? Nobody thought that there's that. There was a liquidity issue. The markets are in a serious correction. Yes. But there is no. As the no indication that markets are not functioning, well or that banks are not lifted and well capitalized so really to to release that is interesting risk management strategy and something that adds to the worries in the markets that are institutions might not be functioning, very, well, we have come to rely on these institutions the treasury the Federal Reserve and almost take them for granted that they function well and underpin the functioning of markets. So these developments raise deeper concerns about those institutions. Julia Coronado is founder of macropolicy perspectives. Thanks very much. My pleasure impersonal as they may be before. The twelfth year in a row gift cards are the most popular item on holiday wishlist, according to the national retail federation sixty percent of us asked for gift cards this holiday season, consumers like retailers like them. There's even something in there for the government as Lila Goldstein reports in seamers like gift cards because they're easy to give stores like them because people tend to overspend when they have that free money feeling economists. Joel walled Fogel at the university of Minnesota says there's another major advantage they allow the recipient to choose what he or she wants. So they seem to avoid the itchiness of cash, but they have all the efficiency of cash still maybe he didn't wanna Starbucks card because you hate coffee. That's where the resale market comes into play on websites like carpool and raise unhappy recipients can sell their cards often at a discount for stores. What matters is at the card is actually used. Serena Dolly is a retail analyst at Forrester. They don't get to record any gift card. Revenue as revenue until consumer actually purchases a product with that. And if the cards never used in some states it eventually gets turned over to the government as unclaimed property. I'm Lila Goldstein for marketplace. China said today it will lower import taxes a K tariffs on more than seven hundred goods starting in the new year. This will apply to all countries. BBC senior reporter leashes and Torelli joins us. A leash awhi- is trying to doing this the main intention behind this move is to boost economic growth as well. As to economy. This is also being seen as a goodwill gesture towards the US because by taking these of cuts now it streamlines the way folio her. China's main trade negotiator to push will a truce when he arrives in Washington next month for talks now during this trade conflict between China and the US a lot of barriers were thrown up trying to put up a lot of tariffs on US products. Does this mean those? Are coming down. No, it doesn't a lot of the tariffs and restrictions remain in place until there's a breakthrough in talks between the US and China, those talks only going to take place in January and February, but some US exports will actually benefit from the reduction tariffs that would nounce today by Beijing. We also saw reports this morning that China was considering a new law to stop local Chinese governments from forcing companies to share technology in order to do business there that has been a major complaint from the US and Europe of China has denied for years that it happens at all. So what do you make of this what currently happens is that foreign companies when they want to operate in China, they usually do this rejoin venture, but the usually full to transfer really valuable proprietary technology to their Chinese partners. This has led to allegations of stealing IP. And so with this new streamlines foreign investment little we would see that. Hopefully, come to. An end. But again a lot will boil down to whether local governments will enforce it leashes. Centrally BBC senior reporter, thanks very much. You're welcome. Here's

"They were brought to us by lila goldstein at you hampshire public radio naturalization ceremonies carry with them a sense of permanence they've signifying end to an often long immigration process but last month us citizenship and immigration services started a task force to review cases where people may have lied in order to get citizenship and now the administration says it could be d naturalizing potentially a few thousand people to understand what that means and to put it in context we're joined by may nine she's a professor of history at columbia university welcome thank you for having me is what the trump administration doing here new i mean are historical precedent for devoting resources like this trying to detect citizenship fraud the last time the federal government tried to d naturalized citizens was during the mccarthy period and they went after people who they were accusing of being communists who are naturalized citizens and they took away their citizenship and deported them it wasn't that many people because actually it's not that easy to do but that was the last time that there was a concerted effort so it's been almost seventy five years since the government has tried to do it and i think most people would say that the red scare or the mccarthy period was not the nation's proudest moment we'll just to be clear are you saying that in administration since the mccarthy era on a case by case basis when it comes up government officials will address it but there isn't sort of a proactive effort to ferret out naturalization fried exactly usually naturalization cases come up when a charges made so somebody might come forward and accuse a naturalized citizen of having lied money application and then the government will follow up and do an investigation and if there's evidence of that they will bring a charge so they do not proactively go out to ferret out so to speak naturalization fraud so that is how this effort is quite different from decades past that's right what kind of fraud are we talking about in say this case this new task force which is looking for cases of fraud in applications for citizenship what kind of lies are they saying might have occurred in these applications well typically you would be concerned about somebody who had criminal convictions and they were not honest about it on their application there are also cases where you could be stripped of your citizenship if you failed to disclose that you are member of a prescribed organization like the nazi party or al qaeda you could be denaturalized if you had an dishonorable discharge from the military so these are really the the only grounds for do you naturalizing somebody and when someone is accused of committing fraud while they're trying to become a citizen what does it take to actually strip them of citizenship what what is the process well this is another important issue today because it is not an immigration issue this is an issue of the district courts it's the district courts that grant citizenship that grant naturalization and it's only the district courts that can take it away so a charge has to be brought by us attorney now the trump administration is being very vague about this but if they are going to hand this over to department of homeland security or is which is what some of the murmurings indicate then that would be a violation of our own established procedures and people would not be getting their day in court and if the government is successful at proving that there was fraud and stripping someone of citizenship then what happens to that person are they immediately deported back to their home country yes immediately are there statistics that measure how often fraud happens in the naturalization system it is rare compared to the numbers of people who are naturalized every year it is a relatively small number but the trump administration says they think they could potentially be deporting thousands of people thousands of people could have been committing naturalization fodder those numbers you don't trust those numbers this idea that there might even be a couple of thousand people who lied on their applications is a very small number compared to the number of naturalized citizens we have in this country we have millions of them and a third of the people in this country who were foreign born are naturalized citizens that's may ni of colombo university thank you for joining us thank you for having me.
