’99ers’ Story Elicits Viewer Reactions, Tales
Paul Solman: There’s been quite a bit of reaction to our story last Friday on the extension (or non-extension) of unemployment insurance benefits past 99 weeks.
While almost all of the comments echo the grim chords struck by our interviewees in the initial story, a few e-mailers take issue with individual points. It’s taking some research to respond to them, which I’ll do as soon as I can.
But for the next few days, I thought we’d share a few fascinating outtakes from our interviews with 99ers last week. We’ll begin posting those tomorrow.
