Job market still rough on Long Island
Thousands of Long Islanders will lose their unemployment benefits starting next week.
Nearly 6,000 will have exhausted their benefits come Monday.
As many cope with the rough economy and stagnant job market, Labor Department spokesman Mark Grossman says there are many jobs available - albeit most are temporary.
Grossman encourages the jobless to visit one of five career centers across the Island. Grossman says the centers offer an opportunity for those struggling to fine tune resumes and interview skills.
