The National Urban League conference opens in Philadelphia Wednesday with the theme "Redeem the Dream: Jobs Rebuild America." Absolutely. The job situation is improving, but not fast enough.
The conference begins Wednesday, but the focus on jobs strengthens on Thursday with workshops in the morning and a career and network fair that begins at 11 a.m. The job fair continues on Friday. On Saturday, the focus skews younger with workshops for college-bound youngsters. There is also a day long seminar for entrepreneurs on Saturday.
