President Obama making dent in troubling jobs situation

We’re starting to make an executive-level dent in jobs & the economy.. Today, in addition to ordering federal agencies not to discriminate against long-term unemployed workers, President Obama got commitments from a bunch of companies to ensure their hiring practices don’t discriminate against long-term job-seekers. President Obama is also setting aside $500 million for community colleges to create job- driven training partnerships with employers and industry. That’s a great commitment of resources!
