More than 700 workers will be affected by the Oscar Mayer plant closing in Madison, but a reporter says what’s bad for workers is good for investors. We explore the business decisions that led to the closing of the 96-year-old factory. We also get the story behind the Badger Ammo Plant’s historic apple trees, and get the latest on the biggest political stories from Washington D.C.
