More Conn. workers seeking part time, temporary jobs

Connecticut residents who are looking for work were no doubt disappointed to learn the unemployment rate rose slightly to 8.1 percent in June. The Department of Labor has reported the state has only recovered 48 percent of lost jobs in the recession. For the unemployed, the under whelming job growth has limited their options. As a result there's been a recent surge in workers seeking part-time and temporary jobs, hoping to break the cycle of unemployment.
