On last night's 60 minutes (10/24/10)Scott Pelley reported on people referred to as the "99ers". "99ers" are those unemployed that have reached the end of their unemployment benefits. Even though this 60 minutes story focuses on San Jose, California near Silicon Valley, they could be talking about Cleveland, Ohio.
At Hunger Network hunger centers throughout the Cuyahoga County including locations Parma, Lakewood and Bedford, we see similar faces unemployment, people in their 40s, 50s and 60s who thought they had done everything right: earned a degree, stayed with their company, saved for retirement.
