Job Fair

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs' new hotel opens this fall, and the company held a "career fair" Tuesday to look for workers.

"60 Minutes" was built on the premise of "tell me a story" and I try to do that whenever possible.

I met two interesting people at Tuesday's "career fair."  They were people who really need a job.  I tried to tell their stories.

One was the young lady who had to drop out of college because she lost her job.  The other was a single mother of two teenagers.  She works part time at a big box discount retailer, and the company recently reduced her hours.

Both stories broke my heart.  I hope they both find what they want.

There are few things worse than being unemployed.  Yes, I know what it's like.
