Marketplace for Wednesday, October 10, 2012
We kick off Big Money, our special reports all this month on Citizens United and campaign financing, a special Marketplace collaboration with Frontline on PBS. Nancy Marshall-Genzer explores how the Citizens United decision has boosted union canvassers. Meanwhile, Money Matters takes a look at the costs of childcare. Walmart’s first ever retail worker strike has spread to 12 cities and shows no sign of slowing down. Toyota has announced another recall and this time it involves 7.4 million vehicles. And the drought has caused a shortage of dairy for businesses, and a price increase for customers.
