We have been hearing stories of struggles in the job market and small triumphs this week on The Takeaway. We’re asking listeners to tell us their stories of how unemployment has affected their lives. 

Lyndon Dees, of Stillwater, Oklahoma, has been unemployed since he lost his business consulting job at a firm called Deloitte in 2009. His unemployment benefits are running out, and his temporary job working in the admissions office at Langston University ends soon. But he says he's optimistic that a job will open up soon.
