No Holiday Cheer for Unemployed at Thanksgiving

Hosted by

The Federal Reserve has predicted that unemployment will still be at 8% in 2012, and this Christmas could be especially tough for some two million people if the Congress fails to meet a deadline next Tuesday. It’s the last day to extend jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed.  David Lightman reports from Washington for the McClatchy Newspapers.
