(News from the National Urban League)


May employment gains were a disappointment, reflecting slower economic growth during the first quarter of 2011 and expiration of funds provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  Two years after the “official” end of the recession, nearly 14 million workers remain unemployed and 6.2 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer.  Has the time come for another stimulus?

Don’t miss two great opportunities to join the national jobs dialogue:

Thursday, July 7
Please join U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis for a national conversation via conference call as she unveils highlights from the recent report “The African American Labor Force in the Recovery”, a 2011 report by the U.S. Department of Labor, this Thursday, July 7th, at 1:30 PM (EDT). To receive the call-in phone number, please RSVP at http://s.dol.gov/GF

Note to participants: If you have questions, please e-mail A’shanti Gholar, Special Assistant to the Secretary at Gholar.Ashanti.F@dol.gov.

Friday, July 8
