Boot camp for the 'unemployable'

Brooke talks with lead job trainer Rob Smith about the new Sundance program "Get to Work" which provides a month-long boot camp to those considered 'unemployable'. This boot camp takes ex-convicts, ex-drug addicts, homeless people and others with extensive histories and teaches them how to find employment.
