Minnesota's unemployment gap: forum identifies barriers, talks solutions
Samuel Myers addresses Minnesota's minority business firms.
Another issue addressed at Thursday's conference involved minority business owners. Sam Meyers, from the Humphrey Institute (see here for his power point presentation) said that minority businesses hire 90 percent minority workers. However, he said that the failure rate for minority firms is higher than other businesses, and he therefore cautioned against relying on minority business firms to solve the unemployment crisis.
