The head of the Greater Philadelphia Cahmber of Commerce says something
dramatic has to happen to break the current cycle of high unemployment.

have a fighting chance to deal with the high numbers of unemployment."

Hudson says, Moyer Indoor-Outdoor actually use a beagle scout for bed bug detection.
