In case you missed it last Friday, Sabine Schoenbach had a great essay published in Raleigh’s News & Observer [1] on the unemployment insurance debacle. Here’s an excerpt:

“Those going over the cliff are jobseekers, first and foremost, but the job market remains grim. Despite a small improvement in the state’s unemployment rate over the last three months, jobseekers are looking for work in a state with a record number of unemployed workers who have been out of work for a record length of time. There are 4 million unemployed workers chasing just 1.4 million jobs in the entire U.S. South.”
