Labor Day is around the corner...Wall Street's going to take the day off, but we're not.

This gave us a perfect opportunity to look at the labor market and how its organized.  It's our Norma Rae special!  Or maybe better: our State of the Unions address!

In this episode, we take a look at how union membership has changed in the past several decades.  We also take a look at unions now. And as always, we take our usual tour around Wall Street.

We've got an update on interest rates now that Janet Yellen has given her much anticipated Jackson Hole speech.  We've got a deep dive into the housing market.  And we've got a preview of next week: in keeping with the Labor Day theme, its all jobs data all the time.
