Rich Silverstein Pledges ‘One Job for America’

In order to combat the staggering nine percent unemployment rate in the U.S., Rich Silverstein, co-namesake of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners along with his wife, Carla Emil, have pledged to create one new job, and they’ve encouraged other businesses to do the same.

By creating the “One Job for America” campaign, Silverstein and Emil are using social networking and word-of-mouth tactics to get other business to make a pledge and create one job to battle the dour economic situation. On the campaign’s website, businesses across the country can take the pledge by filling out a brief form. Later, companies will report to the campaign, detailing one job they created and who they hired.

In a blog on The Huffington Post today, Emil went into detail about “One Job for America,” saying, “It’s a leap of faith, I know. But if you do this and tell someone else about it and they do it too and so on who knows what we can accomplish. The spirit is to generate new jobs. We want companies to start hiring again. And we want people to be hopeful again.”
