Phil Chant, VP of Chant Engineering, will appear on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric tonight at 6:30pm. Chant Engineering will be featured on the program tonight regarding their involvement and utilization of the program, “Hire Just One.”
Hire Just One is a program created by Philadelphia philanthropist, Gene Epstien, in response to the slumping economy.
The United States has 5,700,000 small businesses with multiple employees. If just 10% of those businesses were to hire just one employee, the nation’s unemployment numbers would drop significantly, consumer confidence would go up, and consumers would then start to make purchases again. Our entire economy would begin to turn around.
HireJustOne offers an opportunity for the first 250 businesses that sign on, to employ just one additional person from the unemployed ranks for a minimum of six months. In doing so, each will receive a $1,000 donation to one of many important charities. These national charities fund job retraining programs, wounded warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan, homeless shelters, and more. In the end, you win, charities wins, and most of all, the nation wins.
