The article focuses on the subject of corporate responsibility towards various social issues in the United States. For more than a decade, unemployment has remained at unacceptably high levels. There are now more than nine million Americans without work. As a result of a deteriorating educational system, many high school graduates lack science and math skills at a time of growing need for technically trained workers. Corporate social responsibility, as generally perceived at present, is on the periphery of these and other major unmet societal needs. Hence, the programs of corporations are addressing symptoms more than their root causes.
