60 Minutes Preview: Unemployment and the 99ers

Even after an extension of unemployment benefits to 99 weeks, many of those about to go off the program are in a quandary. Scott Pelley talks to some of them in California's Silicon Valley. Sunday, Oct. 24, 7 p.m. ET/PT.


  1. This was an interesting piece and I feel bad for many of them. However, I'm always puzzled when I hear stories like the man who used to earn $200,000/year and then snickered at the nearly $2000/month in unemployment benefits. It seems that many people were living at their means and left no room for the unexpected.

  2. Really sad , disheartening to see so many unemployed people, The government has to take some measures to generate jobs.
