Jo Anne Klement, 65, of Westbury, became unemployed in 2010, when her job in a local retailer's call center was outsourced after a year. "So many of the jobs I can't do any more because they have been sent overseas," Klement said. Her 15 years of experience as an administrative assistant in the health-care industry hasn't given her the edge she expected. (Feb. 3, 2012)(Credit: Heather Walsh)
