White House Meets Business / To discuss better job training and discrimination against long-term unemployed

The White House released a list of 23 corporate or small business leaders joining with Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to discuss better job training to expand manufacturing capacity and help people who have been jobless for years re-enter the workforce. They include AT&T Inc., CVS Caremark Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and The Kroger Co.

The administration and the companies will “establish best practices” so that they don’t “screen people out of the hiring process just because they’ve been out of work for a long time,” Obama said in an interview on CNN.

More than 300 companies, including 80 of the nation’s largest businesses, have signed a White House pledge to develop initiatives for hiring and recruiting the long-term unemployed, according to the White House.
