Marketplace for Monday, May 28, 2012

Happy Memorial Day. If you're ditching the barbeques and looking to shop, some retailers are hoping you'll head to your computer. We look at the growing trend of "summer hours" -- when employees work more from Mondays to Thursdays and get Fridays off. A Miami hardware store is ditching the penny. Texas will soon hold its Republican primary. We explore the growing influence of Latino voters in the state. In Spain, officials are trying to figure out how to rescue one of its biggest banks. Libya is facing economic uncertainty ahead of its June elections. Here in the U.S., one commentator argues that it's time to decriminalize marijuana. And author Joel Stein discusses manly investing.
