Part-time Jobs the Looming Question in Economic Recovery

Video duration: 6:11

Unemployment is dropping but what kinds of jobs are being created and how much do they pay? MetroFocus visits a small start-up grocery store in the booming Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg to find out. Host Rafael Pi Roman follows up with an interview with The Wall Street Journal’s Laura Kusisto who analyzes the economic recovery in the New York region.
