Marketplace for Thursday, November 22, 2012

Enjoying Thanksgiving dinner? Your turkey may have cost a little bit more this year thanks to last summer's drought. Planning to go Black Friday shopping? We look at why stores open so early, anyway. And if you're planning to head to Walmart, you might encounter demonstrations. Some workers are planning a walkout over unfair pay. We talk with Gallup's Frank Newport about who's shopping on Black Friday and check in with two expats about how they're doing on turkey day. Plus, stories on prestigious colleges offering courses online and will the U.K. leave the EU?
