Krystal Ball fills in for Steve Kornacki once again. Here’s what is on deck for our show this morning –
Walmart workers earn wages so low, that just because one is employed there, doesn’t mean that person can survive. Taxpayer money is subsidizing Walmart’s low wages – is Congress going to fix any of this?

There are about 3.5 million people in America who experience some kind of homelessness every year, and about a quarter of them are employed at the time – and still can’t afford to pay for a place to live. How can this cycle ever be broken?
General Motors selecting a woman as CEO is being called a milestone. Is it? Is this progress? Or have we flat-lined? What policies can help move women forward even further?
