On the eve of the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s release of employment numbers for November, President Obama will host 130 business leaders at the White House today for a "Jobs Summit." The President's summit will include a meeting of the minds between CEOs of large corporations and small business owners; economists, labor union leaders and non-profit groups. Newt Gingrich, in response to the president's summit, announced yesterday that he will hold his own meeting, deeming it the "Real Jobs Summit." So with all the summits, we at The Takeaway decided to hold our own, including Dan Gross, senior editor at Newsweek; Ken Rogers, executive director of Automation Alley in Troy, Mich. (Rogers will be attending President Obama's summit later today); and Dave Thompson, news director for Prairie Public Radio in North Dakota, where unemployment numbers are at a nationwide low.
