Kirsten Gillibrand Plugs Urban Jobs Act In Queens

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) swung by Jackson Heights, Queens on Tuesday to push a bill she hopes will address the daunting problem of youth unemployment. Called the Urban Jobs Act, the legislation she is sponsoring would send non-profits $20 million nationwide in its first year to give 18 to 24 year olds skills training, mentoring, GED preparation, and more.
