Faces of the Recession

  • Kevin Sullivan

    Kevin Sullivan thought it wouldn't be too hard to find an internship in his chosen field. He quickly found out differently.

  • Daniel Maestri

    Daniel Maestri has seen it all as the owner of a restaurant started during the depression by his grandmother.

  • Sister Margaret Smyth

    Sister Margaret Smyth used to help day laborers -- legal and illegal -- find work. There's so little work these days, there's almost no one left to help.

  • Diane Rawles

    Diane Rawles had a lot of experience -- and success -- making money from yard sales, until she decided to raise money recently for her daughter's honeymoon.

  • Daniel Maestri

    Anthony Timperman thought his new business venture was about to take off. Then recession hit.

  • Jennifer Flowers

    Jennifer Flowers was laid off from her job with a non-profit organization the morning of Monday, September 14. By that afternoon, she was petitioning President Obama for a job.

  • Marsha Jones
