Larson Interviewed by FOX9

Professor David Allen Larson, School of Law, was interviewed by KMSP-TV, Fox 9 News concerning President Obama's new "American Jobs Act." Larson analyzed the proposal to prohibit discrimination against individuals who currently are unemployed. He suggested that although the legislation would address concerns that some employers refuse to accept applications from unemployed persons, the fact that employers still can consider the reason persons are unemployed, and whether their skills are up to date may result in the law having little effect on unemployment statistics. ???????LINK ??????9 or 10 pm
