Newsday posted a story Thursday describing the tough state of the Long Island job market, which had "6,800 fewer jobs overall in June than it had a year earlier."
We asked our Facebook followers to describe their experience. Have they had trouble finding work? How rough is it out there? We wanted to find out. We had hoped for a great response and we were very pleased with the number of thoughtful comments we received. Below you can read some of the responses.
