Income Loss Persists Long After Layoffs

Published: August 3, 2009 NY Times front page

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. Chuck Dettman said he had not really considered the notion back in 2001 that he and his friends in a job-search support group would never recover from being laid off.

The country was in a recession then, as now, and the professionals who had just lost their jobs met weekly at a local job center to network and trade advice. Despite the national economic problems, they remained confident that they would not only find  work but would also be compensated as they had been in the past.

Eight years later, however, most of the people who formed the core of Mr. Dettman's group have not made it back to their old
income levels, even if they eventually landed jobs.
