5:41 am
jobs report. yesterday the dow was down 12. the nasdaq was up 7. futures before that report were pointing to a much higher open but looking at the big board now, they are pointing to a lower open. so could be an interesting day for the markets today amazon is pulling the plug on sales of competing streaming services. the online retailer will no longer sell apple tv or google "chromecast." it's all because amazon wants to boost membership of prime instant video service and prime is not compatible with apple tv or "chromecast." amazon will continue to sell other streaming devices as long as they do support prime. frank and michelle? >> jill, a should in has some surprising findings -- a new study has some surprising findings when it comes to what's important to people at work. tell us about that. >> reporter: "show me the money" or boost health benefits. turns out in a new survey from glass door more people said
