Many cities are plagued with chronic unemployment, which makes urban areas ripe for crime and violence. This is what drove security specialist Vince Rose to run for office. He is running for Alderman of Chicago's 7th Ward, an area known for high crime and drug trafficking. Vince's plan is to bring in manufacturers and create jobs. Entreprenuers Pleasant Stephens and Bob Gibsonexplain their intention to expand their businesses into the seventh ward. A clothing manufacturing plant and a solar panel manufacturing plant could bring steady employment to Chicago's South side. They discuss their vision of expanding these operations nationwide and opening factories in other economically depressed cities. Could the solution to urban poverty and it's resulting drug and crime epidemic be in our own hands?
