Job numbers for April came out Friday, showing the U.S. unemployment rate at 8.1 percent. A total of 115,000 jobs were added to the job market last month.

On this week’s “Newsmakers,” AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka discusses these numbers and what that means for America’s workers.

He also talks about how unions see the jobs issue playing out in the presidential race and in congressional campaigns. Labor’s relationship with the President and how the AFL-CIO is using its political action committee this year are also discussed.


The guest reporters are Peter Wallsten, White House Correspondent for Washington Post and Melanie Trottman of the Wall Street Journal.
