*Summary:* This (45 page) study looks at the demographics of the long-term unemployed for the years 2007 to 2010 and compares them to the years 1991 to 1994 to see what changes have occurred specifically among the long-term unemployed. And yet, the data shows that structural changes occurring between 2007 and 2010 are really not much worse than between 1991 and 1994. Rather, the nature of this recession resulted in the composition of the long-term unemployed looking different. Because long-term unemployed in this recession is a function of a particularly deep recession, a new approach is needed. Based on the data, this study argues for a wage policy that would allow for people to increase their effective demand for goods and services.
