NAACP wants Branstad to change the state's job system

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The President of the Iowa and Nebraska National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) wants Governor Terry Branstad to change the job system that he said still discriminates against black job applicants.

On Wednesday, he said Iowa has spent millions of dollars to fix the system but has failed to ensure equality.

This comes after a lawsuit brought on behalf of 6,000 applicants was dismissed Tuesday.
