This was just on World News... I was wondering what everyone else thought...

There is a guy traveling the country in order to try and get every company to agree to hire just ONE more person. His thinking is if every company hire just ONE more person that's millions of jobs without hurting any company in a major way...

Do you think it would work? Do you think companies should jump on the wagon here?

**I'm looking for the link**

  • The guy said he only has one company which has agreed to it, but one is better than none... I think it's a wonderful idea!

  • I think it's a great start. Maybe try to add more every 6mos or every year too.

  • I think it's a great idea in theory.... But I think it would be hard for small companies to do so, and let's face it, the large companies are all about the bottom line, not "doing the right thing"...
