Voices of the Unemployed

Over 187,000 Nevadans are out of work, and the unemployment lines keep getting longer. Some of us have been out of work for months. Some of us are looking at going back to school. Some of us are wrestling with whether or not to leave Nevada to find work elsewhere. On this program, we hear the stories of unemployed people from all walks of life.

Guests:
Paul Mayer, former software engineer and maintenance planner for aircraft companies
Niki Perry, former CitiBank employee
David Alvarado, plumber with Local Union 525
Lynn Baird, Assistant Manager of Southern Nevada Unemployment Insurance operations center, DETR
Nishon Burton, Manager, Nevada Job, DETR
