And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

Mother Jones senior editor, Dave Gilson, joined the Morning AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to discuss a story he published last month about the life of Roert Dowlut, general consul for the the NRA. Dowlut was convicted of murder in South Bend, IN in 1964 but was released 6 years later after an appeal and Supreme Court decisions had his case overturned due to police missteps including denying him the right to see a lawyer. Gilson tells us the tale and about the fallout from his reporting. Take a listen!
