“Help Wanted,” a new series dedicated to America’s ongoing jobs crisis. This week, we visit Ohio’s Cuyahoga County to see how even people who have managed to find work are struggling with stagnant pay and decreasing benefits. Scott Simon also travels to inner-city Baltimore with David Simon, author and creator of the HBO series “The Wire,” to talk to young men on “the corner."
