Job-fair…No men allowed

Millions of Americans have lost their jobs due to the worsening financial turmoil. Desperate to find any opportunity for employment, thousands of women, and even men, lined up for a women’s-only career fair in New York.

The official U.S. unemployment rate is almost at 8 per cent. But some say the real numbers are much higher.

Analysts predict this is just the beginning and the light at the end of the tunnel is, so far, nowhere in sight.

Lines have been typical in New York City when something was up for grabs at a sales event. But now lines are forming by people hunting for work.

New York has a special job fare, including one for women, and RT has visited one of them.
