What happens when you promise jobs but there's no one to hire?

Chinese tech company Foxconn planned to bring a lot of new manufacturing jobs to the people of Wisconsin, until those plans changed. Turns out there aren't a lot of engineers for hire in Wisconsin. Now Foxconn is asking engineers in China to raise their hands and come on over to Wisconsin. We talk to the Wall Street Journal’s Shayndi Raice about Foxconn’s labor troubles. Also on today's show: Americans spend billions of dollars on their pets every year, with a large portion of that spent on food, and companies are taking note. Plus, in our latest installment of #HowWeChanged, we hear the story of a Wells Fargo loan officer who became a whistleblower in a case alleging the bank unfairly targeted African-Americans with subprime loans.
