Sen. Rob Portman on incentivizing workers to return to work

According to research from the American Action Forum and the University of Chicago, 63% of workers nationally are making more on unemployment with the federal supplement than they would working. But even if the federal supplement is reduced to $100 a week, 25% of the U.S. workforce could still make more on unemployment than returning to work. Sen. Rob Portman (R—Ohio) joins CNBC's "Squawk Box" to discuss his proposal for a back-to-work bonus that could incentivize workers to return to their jobs.
