After all the talk and campaigning about creating jobs, Congress is still more interested in naming post offices and saving sacred sperm, so President Obama has announced a program that will create summer jobs without the Congress.
The Obama administration announced Thursday its plan to create 250,000 teen “employment opportunities” this summer. The program, called “Summer Jobs+”, was kicked off with a commitment so far of 180,000 jobs, according to White House spokesperson Caroline Hughes. The opportunities, targeted at young people, will be in the private-sector as well as federal agencies and non-profit organizations.
I am sure the Republicans will object to this for some reason.
