In a betrayal of American workers, the long-term unemployed lost their main source of survival. On Dec. 31, almost 25,000 unemployed human beings in this state lost their main income. In the first 6 months of 2014, another 37,600 will lose a vital source of food, shelter and heat if Congress fails to act. In Clark County, 1,078 have lost their main survival income, during one of the most brutal winters for years. Their checks are approximately $604. What do you pay for first — food, heat, or housing?
