Lowering the unemployment rate is the toughest task facing any politician.

But it must be tackled head-on.

People who need and want a job ought to have one. Employer subsidies, a 21st century WPA, a Humphrey-Hawkins last-resort/low-income approach - - whatever it takes - - must all be considered.

I pledge to those who have been out of work for 2 or more years (and who have demonstrated an aptitude and a strong desire for work) that I will work relentlessly to provide you with a job.
