Unemployed get in line for Northland jobs
DULUTH - John Powley, a construction worker from Duluth, has been out of work since August. He has been looking, but to date has had no luck finding a job.
"I see a lot of stuff like hospital jobs, but almost nothing for blue-collar workers like me," Powley said as he poked through listings on a computer at the Job Service office in Duluth.
His predicament is all too common in the current economy. There are many more people looking for work than there are jobs available.
