Unemployed. What to do in a democracy?

Some recent articles have re-surfaced the plight of
our neighbors, friends and relatives who are out of
work.  C. Rampel wrote about the struggles of
the forgotten long-term unemployed.  I would add
those who are temporarily employed and under-employed
to this class who we need to find ways of serving.

Voting in elections and participating in our election process is
something that I urge colleagues to consider.  Some
thoughtful motivating presentations are linked to
the piece.  1  2  3  4  5  6  

What thoughts do members have that the ACS should
proactively pursue to encourage careers and employment?

Is it more than job fairs, career consultants and a few
‘courses without certification’? 
Are the ACS webinars honestly helpful?  Several other
societies do them– is it just “me-too” PR?
