Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, June 18, 2012

Critics say President Obama's decision to allow undocumented immigrants to work legally will make the job market here in the U.S. even tougher. Look out for sunburns today, as some new federal rules for sunscreen products that were supposed to take effect won't actually be enforced until December. And what Microsoft is up against when it finally releases its new tablet.
