Any 99ers out there?

A bit of a last minute request, but we’re looking to put a BBC reporter in touch with some of the long-term unemployed in our state. They’re looking to talk to someone in the Raleigh or Rocky Mount area tomorrow, and part of a report at looking at the continuing struggles for those who have been cut off from unemployment insurance.

Please help out by distributing amongst your networks and contact me, Sarah Ovaska (sarah@ncpolicywatch.com), with your email, name, location, and contact information.I’ll pass the information on to the reporter.
