Sharpton: REPUBLICANS To Blame For High Black, Hispanic Unemployment


<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt;">AL SHARPTON
(15:34):</span></strong><span style="font-family: 'Arial','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt;"> One of the reason
that I think people do not understand why unemployment has gone down and in some
cases black unemployment and Latino’s has remained stagnant is over the last
thirty two months Dr. Hutchinson, they’ve increased jobs and found jobs
unemployment has gone down in the private sector. <strong>What has not gone down is
in the public sector and blacks in particular are disproportionately in the
public sector. One of the reasons those jobs have gone down, or have remained
down is one the Republicans are cutting a lot of the agencies, where we are the
employees are government jobs, government employed and a lot of those jobs go
through governors and mayors who are also have had cutbacks.</strong> So what we’ve
got to do and we addressed that to the President is take on these governors and
mayors as well as the private sector on why the private sector is getting all
these contract and bailouts and not hiring and correcting the disproportionate
amount of their employment does not touch our community and have the President
and them support us in that.</span></p>
