Marketplace Money for Friday, May 4, 2012

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
It may be a lousy job market out there -- STILL -- but some kids are young enough to believe their dream job awaits. We'll hear what they learned from mom and dad on Take your Daughter or Son to Work Day. And maybe it's time to put your money in a bottle. A wine bottle. The wine world has its own index and everything -- but should you invest? If you just want to sip it, we also have advice on how to get the best wine for the lowest price. And NFL great and multi-millionaire Warren Sapp gives his first broadcast interview since filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. So how does it happen?
