Is the Jobs Summit Just a Photo Op?
salon.com — Some of the best minds of this generation are getting together at the White House jobs summit this week to get our economy back to pre-recession levels. But if they do only that, we will all fail. President Obama is right to bring together some of the nation's top business, labor and community leaders to figure out how to bring jobs into the recovery. But just re-creating the past is not enough. We must create a new financial structure — an inclusive, expansive economy that harnesses the skills of all people. An economic recovery that doesn't lift up low-income people and communities of color is no recovery at all. President Obama has shown he is committed to a recovery for all, which is why I am honored to be one of several nonprofit and advocacy leaders who will try to bring the voices of struggling Americans to the table at the jobs summit.
