*Summary: *The recession may have ended in June 2009, but for the 12.9 million workers who were laid off in the past three years, times have been tough. About half these (6.1 million people) were experienced workers who had worked for their employer for 3 or more years when they were let go. A report http://www.bls.gov/news.release/archives/disp_08242012.pdf from the U.S. Department of Labor released this week documents just how difficult it has been for these workers, despite their long tenure with their former employer, to find new jobs and suggests why those still on the job are reluctant to take time they need when they're sick.
