From Exec To $12/Hour
A look at what happened to one executive who had to take a 'survivor job' in this economy.

On Thursday's show, we spoke to Mark and Maggie Cooper, a couple who has felt the albatross of this recession around their necks more than anyone. Mark was a corporate executive who lost his job and was forced to take a janitorial position at $12 an hour just to keep food on the table for his family.

Watch the web-exclusive video below to see more of the Cooper's heartfelt story and see why, right now, no one should consider any job as beneath them.
