Original tape date: March 22, 2004.
Host, David R. Jones, President of the Community Service Society of New York, discusses the results of two CSS surveys with the Bronx Borough President, Adolfo Carrion. The first survey of about 1,000 low income people found that about half had major issues with housing, unemployment, and having their utilities cut off. The second survey found that about half of black men and a third of Latino men in New York City are currently unemployed. Carrion details how this effects the Bronx in particular; the Bronx has the highest unemployment rate in NYC.
