According to the latest jobs report, about 200,000 jobs were added to the economy and unemployment went down to 3.9% last month. By some measures, this means the U.S. has finally reached full employment. But the millions of Americans struggling to find jobs aren't so sure.
Today on the show, is this really as good as the economy is going to get? We look at this complex situation through the eyes of someone who has been job hunting for over a year and ask an economist what full employment actually means.
