Disappointing. Dismal. Bleak. These are just a few of the words used to describe the latest employment report. It showed that the U-S economy added just 69-thousand jobs in May, less than half of what economists expected. With the unemployment rate now at 8.2 percent, we asked people in Athens, Ohio, and Washington, D.C., how they're faring in this economy.
