Disappointing news on the economy this week.

The Labor Department shows the economy added just 80,000 jobs in June. That's higher than in May, when 77,000 jobs were added.

But, economists thought employers would hire an additional 90,000 workers last month. The unemployment rate is holding steady at 8.2 percent.

President Barack Obama only has four more chances, or months, to show that his economic plans are working.

Here to discuss is WFAA's financial analyst Eric Amado.
