Personal stories of unemployment

Friday, March 20, 2009

Unemployment rates just continue to rise. The lack of work has lead to the unemployed taking whatever jobs they can get their hands on. As we look at the faces behind the numbers, we are joined by Jason Reed who lost his job as a carpenter and was evicted out his apartment, and is now living with his wife and three boys in a motel room in Westerly, Rhode Island. Also on the show is Tom Crawford who used to work as a paralegal making $40,000 a year, he now works as an insurance agent barely making ends meet. We are also joined by Mark Dixon, a placement coordinator for Good Temps here in New York City. He has seen first hand the increase in people coming to him looking for work and the jobs they are willing to take.

"One of the most important things to do is sell your ability and your desire and your drive."
— Mark Dixon, placement coordinator for Good Temps, on how to market yourself to employers
