Targeted Jobs Programs

Melanie Campbell, president, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation says, "The African-American unemployment rate continues to slump at a dismal 15.5 percent, while the national employment rate has been falling as of late. If we’re carrying the brunt of the burden, why aren’t there solutions that focus on our plight directly? Full implementation of President Obama’s Jobs Bill would at least be a good start."
