Marketplace for Friday, April 5, 2013

Monthly job numbers were released, and there are fewer workers in the workplace again, many of them leaving the job hunt discouraged. We talk to a discouraged worker about that choice.

They can make it happen. At the top of the corporate food chain, corporate heads have been rolling this week, as boards punish poor performers. JC Penney cut their top executive's pay by 96 percent. We try to figure out why he's staying on with all the missing zeroes on his pay check.
