New York man wears sandwich board pleading for job

A former businessman has taken to the streets of New York wearing a sandwich board pleading for a job opportunity as the financial crisis hits the middle classes.
The image of desperate job seekers on street corners is associated with the darkest days of the Great Depression.
However, the scene has become a reality once again as America suffers a deep recession that has left millions out of work.
Paul Nawrocki, 59, took to the streets after nine months of fruitless searching for a new job, with a sandwich board that reads: "Almost Homeless. Looking for employment. Very experienced operations and administration manager.
"Desperately seeking full-time employment with insurance benefits. For self and family. Disabled wife on 15 medications."
