Mayor’s Jobs Forum showcases growth spots and challenges
On January 6, 2010, Mayor A C Wharton hosted the Mayor’s Jobs Forum, a unique opportunity to collectively hear from area business, labor and nonprofit leaders to discuss their thoughts as to how together we can grow our city’s economic potential. During this time of economic uncertainty, the Forum provided a platform to discuss what real challenges face our city, the state of unemployment, as well as the need for minority businesses to be placed top of mind for future business opportunities in the Mid-South. The Forum also presented ways that government can systematically work towards moving our city forward by creating gainful employment for all citizens.
