Looking at the numbers, it turns out blue collar workers have lost their jobs faster than the rest of the nation. When the economy fell off a cliff, you might say it landed on them. Certain work force sectors have been hit so hard by the recession, the rate of job losses there match the plunge in overall employment during the Great Depression. Friday morning at 9, Plain Dealer Metro columnist Regina Brett and guests discuss what the fallout may be and whether the needs of the long-term unemployed can be met.

Guests

Tom Fisher, Truck Driver
Andrew Sum, Professor of Economics & Director of the Center for Labor Market Studies, Northeastern University
George Zeller, Economic Research Analyst
