Open for Questions: Youth and the American Jobs Act
Hi everyone. I’d like to invite you to a very special edition of “Open for Questions” on Wednesday, September 14th, at 4:00PM EDT. Please join me and senior White House officials as we field questions on how the American Jobs Act will impact young Americans. I'll moderate this conversation with:
- Michael Pyle, Special Assistant to the President, National Economic Council
- Roberto Rodriguez, Special Assistant to the President for Education Policy
We’ve already received a number of questions about the American Jobs Act, like:
- How will the President’s plan support young entrepreneurs?
- Will the plan help prevent police, firefighters and teacher layoffs?
- What programs will the American Jobs Act support on youth employment?
On Wednesday, we'll answer these questions, and many more. So, send us your questions and please be sure to tune in for the live video chat. Here's how you can participate:
