Oregon’s long term unemployed will get help under a bill passed by the Oregon Senate. Democratic Senator Joanne Verger says thousands of Oregonians have not been able to find work and have run out of unemployment benefits. Republican Senator Brian Boquist says the lifeline will help 50,000 Oregonians. But, he says simply extending benefits is not the answer. He says Oregon workers need to be re-trained, because in many cases the jobs they held before the recession no longer exist. The bill now moves to the House.
