Job Creation: DNC Style

Posted: Updated:

On the first official day of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, I posed the question: What is the solution to America's current job crisis? The system is broken, the people are suffering, the political debate is alive, yet there is no viable solution in sight. So, while walking the streets of Charlotte, I directed the question to the people of the DNC. I chose to explore this rich, vibrant community packed with creative minds, buoyant youth and innovative solutions. Here are some of the highlights.
