Have you been unemployed for an extended amount of time and have exhausted all of the unemployment benefit extensions?
We are working on a story about people who have exhausted their unemployment benefits and would like to talk to people in that position.
There have been a number of government extensions, but the depth of the recession has meant that many laid-off workers go an awfully long time without landing another job. A rising number of them have run out — or are about to.
If you are losing your benefits and are willing to speak about it on the record — we’d want your name and the town you live in — call economics writer Michael Kanell (404-526-7044) or drop him an email message. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
