WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House pledged on Wednesday to help lower-income youth find summer jobs in a move likely to appeal to younger voters crucial to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

The initiative is in partnership with the cities of Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco and is meant to add 110,000 jobs, internships and mentorships to the 180,000 summer work opportunities for 16-24 year olds that Obama has promised to create for 2012.

Under the new program, companies such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, Johnson & Johnson, and UBS, as well as non-profits and federal agencies such as the Department of Education will offer paying jobs as well as mentorships and other training programs.

Seems all the money given to the ‘black community’ has done nothing but produce Trayvons... Time to rethink this approach....Doubt this new ‘program’ will do anything - none of the other ‘programs’ worked...

” Hussein should be pimping companies like Solyndra. “

He would, if he could find any that weren’t in ‘take-the-money-and-run’ bankruptcy...

Obama assumes that the targeted “lower income youth” actually want to work.

This is directed towards those “guilty whites” who still think that the brainwashed youths Obama refers to prefer work over burglary...

53% of college graduates over the last 5 or 6 years are unemployed.

That's several million people.

Obama's target is so small in this huge country it won't make any observable difference to anyone.
