For people who have been out of work for an extended period of time during this economic crisis, the cost has been especially high. In 2011, the percentage of unemployed who were jobless for six months or more was 43.8 percent. Currently it’s down to 40.7 percent, but more people were counted as long-term unemployed in 2011 than at any time since the government started keeping records in 1948. Of people out of work for more than a year since the recession, only 1 in 10 will find work each month.
