AARON GLANTZ
Glantz just wrote the piece "A New Jobs Bill Is Needed," which states: "With almost 15 million Americans unemployed, Congress has a moral obligation to pass another jobs bill. But it also has a moral obligation to ensure that those who need the jobs the most are not left out in the cold. ...

"A series of investigations coordinated by New America Media, where I work, shows that over the last year those dollars have systematically bypassed communities of color. In the last year, 98 percent of stimulus contracts from the U.S. Department of Transportation have gone to white-owned firms."
Glantz is an editor at New America Media and author of the book The War Comes Home: Washington's Battle Against America's Veterans.
