After two years on the unemployment rolls, Selena Forte thought she'd found a temporary job at a delivery company that matched her qualifications.

But Forte, a 55-year-old from Cleveland, says a recruiter for an employment agency told her she would not be considered for the job because she had been out of work too long. She had lost her job driving a bus.

"They didn't even want to hear about my experience," said Forte. "It didn't make sense. You're always told just go out there and get a job."

My thoughts are, it is no wonder people give up the job search. I know people who have children who have a degree that are told constantly that they are over qualified and will just quit when they find something better. Well, who would expect them not to. Especially when the jobs only pay minimum wage or a little more.

I expect we have some extremely interesting time in our future.
