'HIRE DETROIT' challenges business to employ Detroiters

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

The HIRE DETROIT! movement is a new plan to get Detroit's economy back on track, and it's a movement that is getting backing from Washington, D.C.

HIRE DETROIT! is all about getting Detroit companies to hire unemployed Detroiters. One of the biggest obstacles is education and training, so the Obama Administration is putting millions of dollars into a program designed to help our local community colleges to create those training programs that will prepare metro Detroiters for jobs that are hiring right now.

HIRE DETROIT! will run throughout 2014 and hiring data will be traced so we'll know how many Detroiters are landing jobs.
