Airing on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015: Today, thousands of adjunct faculty and their students around the country are planning demonstrations to demand better pay and some kind of stability. We learn more about these temporary, often part-time, and usually low-paid instructors-for-hire. And Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is back on Capital Hill today talking jobs and the economy. But what she's saying is likely to sound a lot like what she's said before. Plus, Campbell Soup reports its second-quarter earnings today and it is already warning that it expects those numbers to be down given the strong dollar. The well-known brand recently reorganized shifting its central focus from its familiar soups, which have faced lukewarm sales of late, to bigger moneymakers like the baby food Plum Organics.
