Our Caller, Tom, in Vermont

This article is more than 9 years old.

In today's first hour, we had a caller named Tom in Burlington, Vermont, who lost his job as a craftsman (builds furniture, entry doors, mantles, stairs, etc.) seven months ago. After spending  six months looking for a job, talking with more than 100 companies, he's moved from Georgia to Tennessee to Vermont, and says he's now living in the back of his vehicle.  He's still looking for work.  We've already received a number of calls from listeners who want to help. If you'd like to contact him, you can email hmcquilk at wbur dot org.
