The Dung Sisters

As the recession lingers on, many unemployed people are finding their job prospects dwindling.

Anna Bliss and Linda Lehmann both lost their jobs last year. They went to unemployment support groups but found the groups to be all about networking, not helping one another get through the anxiety and sadness of being jobless.

So started the Dung Sisters—a small group of unemployed women who meet weekly to share their highs and lows as they try to lift themselves out of unemployment. 

Linda and Anna talk with Dick Gordon about how the Dung Sisters came to be and how it has changed their outlooks on the job search and their lives.
