60 minutes story on the 99 weeks of Unemployment
60 minutes did a story on people who are running out of the 99 weeks of Unemployment checks. They speak about people who have spent hardship withdrawls from their 401k's and now depend on charities for free food.
They have stories of people who earned $70,000 to $200,000 who were shop-a-holics and now after having applied to hundreds of jobs are forced to scrounge around for recyclables and depend on family and friends for financial help.
