Yahoo Reports Unemployment At 9.7% While Reporting 7.9% Days Before The Election, Yahoo Changes Their Line

Long-term unemployed? Share your story with Yahoo News

Unemployment numbers only tell one side of the story:

• Nationwide unemployment sits at 9.7 percent

• 2 million unemployed workers could lose jobless benefits should the country hit the looming “fiscal cliff”

• In 2012, average hourly pay has risen just 1.6 percent—short of inflation’s 2 percent rise

But it’s the personal stories of unemployed Americans that resonate and offer insight into how joblessness affects us. Yahoo News is inviting unemployed workers, or those who consider themselves severely underemployed, to share their stories of looking for work.

Yahoo changes their line.
