Stories of the People Behind the Unemployment Figures That Our Leaders Need to Hear

Post by Guest on Sun Aug 14, 2011 1:14 pm

That's why I was so pleased to be involved in a documentary done by NBC on the ongoing effects of the economic downturn, focusing on the lives of three women in a hard-hit Georgia town, Millen. It will appear at 7PM this Sunday, August 14. Looking at the empty streets of Millen and watching the interviews with Krystal Chance, Sandy Becton, and Kimberly Thompson, it's impossible not to see just how fundamentally the downturn has affected the lives of millions of hardworking families -- men and women who are doing all they can to get back to work, but who've found the economy they once knew has disappeared. Washington has lost sight of the real human cost of the recession and the desperate need for "jobs, jobs, jobs." Maybe stories like Krystal's, Sandy's, and Kimberly's can help open a few eyes.

I will definitely be watching this as well as millions of other Americans. Maybe this will help to change the misconceptions and prejudices the unemployed face every day.
