‘The Crisis of Minority Unemployment’

‪#‎STRIVE‬ is pleased that The New York Times published a letter to the editor by our CEO, Phil Weinberg. The letter, a response to the Times’ Feb. 21 editorial, “The Crisis of Minority Unemployment, ” notes that “the crisis of urban unemployment burns with greater intensity than ever” – but there are proven ways to combat it.

Read the letter, and let us know what you think. http://www.nytimes.com/…/04/opinion/jobs-for-minorities.html
