Nela Richardson of Redfin and John Carney of the Wall Street Journal talk with Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal about this week’s business and economic news. This week, they discuss the 161,000 new jobs in this economy and what this means for our wages. What can our next president do to help all Americans feel the positive effects of these improvements in employment?
