U.S. Jobs: What's Hot and What's Not
Retail lost 13,000 jobs in January, which the Labor Department said was "little changed" from December. The sector witnessed gains in the prior three months, but cuts in sporting goods, hobby stores, book stores and music stores ended that streak.
"The guy that's working in retail, it doesn't mean there are not jobs, it means that the job you used to make $18 for, you're now going to take it for $11," Turner said in an interview.
