Romney’s Retail Jobs Wages Lower Than Middle Income Play

Feb. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Mike Tackett and Hans Nichols report on the political impact of Mitt Romney's job creation claims at Staples and Sports Authority. Sales associates at the two chains make less than $9 an hour on average, according to survey data from Glassdoor.com, meaning someone working 40 hours a week would earn below the poverty line of $19,090 for a family of three. They speak on Bloomberg Television's "InBusiness With Margaret Brennan."
