Many people looking for work are finding the longer you're unemployed, the harder it is.
The unemployed are finding out the longer they stay out of work, the more trouble they have finding a job.
Across the country more and more American workers are falling into the category of "the long term unemployed".
The average time out of work for this group is almost eight months.
That's up from three months in 2001.
"The challenge of this thing there are more people looking for a job than the growth number of jobs," says Nova University's Dr. Albert Williams.
On top of that, older workers are not retiring, which means even fewer jobs are becoming available.
