In My Experience: Long-term UnemploymentDownload audio (MP3)
California's unemployment rate is now at a dismally high 11.9 percent. We talk to some of the people behind those numbers as part of our new "In My Experience" series, spotlighting personal stories of Northern Californians. For our inaugural show we talk with people who have been unemployed for more than a year about their efforts to find work, and about their personal struggles with unemployment.
Host: Dave Iverson
- Bobby Rivers, unemployed broadcaster living in San Francisco
- Chris Ho, unemployed former proofreader for law firms living in Sacramento
- Dawn Bryan, unemployed interior designer who last worked in the hospitality industry, living in Santa Rosa
- Marisol Quintana, unemployed art director and graphic designer living in Oakland
