Economists announced in June 2009 that the recession ended. Yet, so many of us are still struggling to find a job. In fact, California comes close to being the highest in unemployment across the country.
Our show today will look at why our jobless rates are so high. And, we'll introduce you to some organizations that are working hard to help you find a job.
