First up, the Fed released new data on industrial production this morning. How will the markets react? Plus, Americans who’ve been out of work for months face an uphill battle getting hired. That’s why 300 companies signed a White House pledge earlier this year to bring down some of the barriers faced by the long-term unemployed in this country.
