10:00 Last week General Motors named Mary Barra their CEO. She's highly qualified, and has worked at the company for over 30 years, so her appointment shouldn't be much of a surprise. Except that she's a woman. This hour we'll discuss why it's still rare for a female to oversee a corporation, and whether young women are aiming for the boardroom at all. Guests

Guests

11:00 The federal full minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, while sub-minimum wage for tipped employees is $2.15 per hour. Are these numbers fair? Can you make a living off minimum wage? Can you make a living as a tipped employee? And finally, are women still paid less than their male co-workers? On this hour of "All Sides," we're talking about minimum wage in Ohio. Guests
