Marketplace for Friday, June 15, 2012

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The Obama administration announced today that it's going to stop deporting young immigrants whose parents brought them to this country illegally as children. This means hundreds of thousands of people could qualify for temporary work status. We get reaction from an undocumented young woman. Father's Day is this Sunday and you have more to thank your dad for than you probably thought -- turns out how well you do in life has a lot to do with how well your dad did. Plus, we look into the costs of raising a child. And reporter Stephen Beard wraps up his A Man Walks Into a Bar series in Greece.
