Special Report on Longterm Unemployed

(NEWS CENTER) -- It is about as stressful a situation as you could ever find yourself in: thousands of Mainers have exhausted their unemployment benefits ... but have been unable to find work.

The Maine Department of Labor calls them "Exhaustees", and has set up a series of programs aimed at putting these Mainers back to work. Others refer to them as "The Invisible Unemployed" because they are not counted in Unemployment reports or as part of the workforce.

If you are in this predicament, NEWS CENTER's Kathleen Shannon would like to talk with you on camera. She is working on a special report on how people in this situation are faring, and what, if any, of the state and federal programs are helping them find work. Please e-mail Kathleen at kashannon@gannett.com.
