As Mitt Romney prepares to speak to the Republican National Convention with a focus on the stagnant unemployment rate and the economy, the Labor Department will hold an online jobs chat.
Billed as marking Labor Day (but half a week before Labor Day), the live Twitter chat at 2 p.m. Thursday will feature Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.
