National Urban League 2013 State of Black America Report
The National Urban League (NUL) recently released its 2013 “State of Black America Report.” While the data showed some progress made in education overall, the NUL insists that these relative improvements should not overshadow the continued and growing unemployment and salary gaps between blacks and whites. To address the issue, the NUL is putting its focus on The Jobs Rebuild America initiative, a new, $70 million dollar effort to target existing and emerging grassroots organizations that provide job training and placement for the undereducated and long-term unemployed.
