Playlist: Jobs numbers showing sluggish growth, two strikes against BP
Posted by Mary Dooe
For Marketplace Morning Report, Wed., Aug. 31, 2011
The big month jobs report from the Labor Department comes out Friday, but earlier reports are already showing a mixed bag for employment in August. Maybe we just need more engineers? And oil giant BP has its own problems — from losing out a big deal to search for crude in the Arctic, to getting their Moscow offices raided by Russian officials.
And here are the songs we played:
- I Am Trying to Break Your Heart – WilcoBuy
- Alpha Beta Gaga – AirBuy
- My Angel Moves Back and Forth – Four TetBuy
- Blinking Lights (For You) – EelsBuy
- Doctor Doctor! – Thompson TwinsBuy
