Expert: US economy still ‘treading water’ but continuing to recover

Unemployment hit a four-year low on Friday when the U.S. Labor Department released its latest jobs report, showing a drop from 7.6 to 7.5 percent unemployment after the economy added an estimated 165,000 jobs in April.

The latest jobs report also raised the estimate for March to 138,000 new jobs from the dismal 88,000 originally reported.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Tony Yezer, an economics professor at George Washington University, to discuss the report.
