US unemployed despair as benefits run out

Michelle Jordan, 40, who lives in Yonkers, New York, was laid off in July.

Her unemployment cheques cover about half of her regular bills, but not her mortgage.

If relatives had not helped her make the house payments, she says the bank might have foreclosed on her property.

Ms Jordan does not need her degree in economics to tell her how bad the economy is.
