Press Release - Chronic Unemployment Worse than Great Depression -- CBS News

June 08, 2011

Recent unemployment headlines are devastating--additional examples of why Washington should act now to stop the slide into an Obama depression. From CBS News:

There is an unfortunate adage for the unemployed: The longer folks are out of a job, the longer it takes them to find a new one.

Consider this staggering statistic, resulting from Obama's job-killing policies:

About 6.2 million Americans, 45.1 percent of all unemployed workers in this country, have been jobless for more than six months - a higher percentage than during the Great Depression.

Newt has a jobs plan to drastically reduce unemployment. America only works when Americans are working. Please take a moment to read the plan and share with your friends and family through email, facebook, and twitter!
