This week, Need to Know returned to Baltimore to investigate chronic unemployment and under-employment among the youth in the inner city.
That’s the problem. Now, what are some possible solutions? To examine that, Need to Know spoke with Deborah Simmons, a senior correspondent for The Washington Times. She’s written extensively about issues facing America’s minority communities. We were also joined by Algernon Austin, the director of the Race, Ethnicity and the Economy program at the Economic Policy Institute, a liberal think-tank.
