CNN exclusive: Obama says Walmart, Apple, others to help jobless - CNN.com

(CNN) -- The White House has secured commitments from some of the nation's largest companies to a plan to boost hiring of the long-term unemployed.

"What we have done is to gather together 300 companies, just to start with, including, some of the top 50 companies in the country, companies like Walmart, and Apple, Ford and others, to say let's establish best practices," President Barack Obama told CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper in an exclusive interview.

"Because they've been unemployed ... so long, folks are looking at that gap in the resume and they're weeding them out before these folks even get a chance for an interview," said Obama.
Glad someone is doing something while the Do Nothing Congress sits on their hands. The private sector will do the work that the GOP House has been blocking for years. :clap2:
