Marketplace Morning Report for Friday, June 1, 2012

Today, the latest monthly job numbers come out and the Federal Reserve will be watching to determine their next move. Although, we hear a lot of data when it comes to the economy, everyone's story is unique. We visit a job center in Portland, Oregon to take the pulse of people who are just hitting the unemployment lines. Wal-Mart shareholders gather in Bentonville, Arkansas for the company's annual meeting. As hurricane season starts, stronger and more frequent storms have companies pulling out of parts of the Bahamas and Florida.
