Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Michelangelo is LIVE on the air today from SiriusXM's L.A. Studios!

3:35pm ET - Despite the fact that over the past few years the U.S. economy has rebounded from previous lows, wage growth for the entire bottom 70 percent of workers in the United States  remained flat or negative from 2003 to 2013 and according to a new report from the University of California, Berkeley, Center for Labor Research and Education these persistent low wages are costing taxpayers approximately $153 billion every year in public support to working families, including $25 billion at the state level.  Joining us today to discuss the report and its finding is Ken Jacobs the Chair of the Labor Center at UC Berkeley who co-authored the report with Ian Perry and Jenifer MacGillvary.  You can also follow Ken on twitter.

4:35pm ET - As many families in America have children that are diagnosed with ADHD, doctors are often quick to prescribe powerful stimulants such as Adderall and Ritalin. In her new book A Disease Called Childhood: Why ADHD Became an American Epidemic, Marilyn Wedge examines the ADHD epidemic, what’s causing it and how a radical, non-medicinal treatment approach may help. Marilyn suggests exploring drug-free avenues to treat ADHD, such as stricter parenting, educational reform and even exercise.  She joins me today to discuss the book, and to explain why she questions whether medicating should be the first approach to treating ADHD.  You can also follow Marilyn on twitter.

Joe Sudbay will be guest hosting tomorrow & Thursday 4/23.

Michelangelo will be back home from tour and Live on the air from our NYC studios on Friday 4/24.
