StoryCorps 409: The Come Back

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

When Darlene Lewis' son was released from prison 20 years ago, he couldn't find work. So, Darlene decided to do something about it. She runs an organization dedicated to helping former inmates find jobs. She's helped thousands of men and women -- including James Taylor, who served seven years for weapons possession and drug charges. Today, James works as a videographer, youth mentor, and also volunteers for Darlene's organization.

Economists See Growth with Unemployment Report

Friday, January 07, 2011

The Labor Department is expected to release December unemployment numbers this morning. And there are rumors the president may also announce a new chief economic adviser to replace Lawrence Summers. Unemployment is likely to remain hovering around 10 percent, but the report is expected to show positive growth from a moth ago when unemployment rose to 9.8 percent from 9.6 percent. And last week, the new claims for jobless benefits increased, while the average number of Americans filing for unemployment insurance declined — a sign of a recovering economy.

Where Did Your Job Go? Economists Can't Answer

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

58 Democrats and two Republicans in the U.S. Senate overcame a Republican filibuster and moved closer to extending unemployment benefits to 2.5 million Americans. A final vote is expected later today.

The larger unemployment picture is complex. The national unemployment rate dropped to 9.5 percent in June, down 0.2 percent from the previous month. However, job growth remained stagnant, with only 21 states seeing net job gains. 

With unemployment still high and practically no job growth, we're asking: where have all the jobs gone? We want you to help us track them down: if you're unemployed, or if you know someone who is, tell us: What happened to the job? Did it go overseas? Or did the company downsize?
