Vice President Biden

Howard Wilkinson

Vice President Joe Biden told the National Urban League Conference Thursday morning that the Obama administration is committed to job training and infrastructure repair.

The Vice President said that will go far in putting under-employed urban residents, particularly African-Americans, in better paying jobs.

Biden's message fit hand-in-glove with the them of the civil rights organization's four-day conference in Cincinnati - "One National Underemployed - Bridges to Jobs and Justice."

About 8,500 delegates will arrive in Cincinnati Wednesday for the four-day annual conference of the National Urban League.

The event at the Duke Energy Convention Center will feature some well-known speakers – Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a potential Republican presidential candidate, on Friday.

The theme of this year’s annual conference is “One Nation Underemployed: Bridges to Jobs and Justice.”
