Examining and addressing the long-term unemployment in New Jersey.

The Heldrich Center for Workforce Development report details the concept of long-term unemployment (LTU), and then uses data to examine New Jersey’s LTU rates in terms of educational attainment, gender, race, and age. It explores some of the challenges of LTU, including age discrimination, diminished confidence and emotional issues, and unrealistic expectations. Finally, the report concludes by offering some strategies and policies to assist LTU job seekers.
