The subject of jobs for the disadvantaged is a terribly broad field, and much discussion and many articles have been written on it in the last year or two.
No one needs to be reminded that America has been and Still is in the throes of a soul-wrenching urban crisis. The riots of Watts, Detroit and Newark focused national attention on our cities and their problems. They made it abundantly clear, had there been any doubt, that many citizens are dissatisfied with their plight and the status quo, and that change is essential.
The response to this unrest will be as varied as the causes giving rise to it. Providing jobs won't be enough, for the problem is deeper and more complex than that. Employment is only part of the answer. However, it is an indispensable part. A man without a job, one who cannot support his family, is unable to hold his head high. If he cannot participate in the system, then he may seek to change it. The simple fact is that all our citizens who want to work must be able to find rewarding employment. And without these jobs, there just will be no workable solution.
