Can one man's charitable donations help turn around the nation's unemployment numbers? Philanthropist Gene Epstein thinks so. The 71 year old Philadelphia resident is using $250,000 of his own money to create Hire Just One, an initiative that encourages businesses to hire again by making a $1,000 donation to charity when a business hires an unemployed person and keeps him or her on the payroll for six months. Epstein joins the program to talk about his ambitious program.
