The Great Recession officially ended in the summer of 2010, but for 25 million unemployed and underemployed Americans, the fallout continues. For too many, their middle-class life has been foreclosed and their dreams have turned into nightmares. Sadly, their stories have too often been ignored. In a strange way they have been disappeared, evicted from our collective conscience. A permanent new underclass of long-termed unemployed.
