The economy added 120,000 jobs in March, but economists were expecting better. We talk with one of the employed - a factory worker who has seen his wages sink even as that sector of the economy hums along. Plus, New York Bureau Chief Heidi Moore and Sudeep Reddy of the Wall Street Journal examine this month's job numbers in our Weekly Wrap segment. Also on the show, a Dutch winemaker saves a vineyard in the south of France as skyrocking real estate prices pit grapes against developers. We talk with the director behind a study out of NYU that says new environmental regulations should consider the jobs lost and gained before being passed. And a look at how reforms to Alabama's immigration laws could help out business but make life harder for undocumented immigrants.
