As part of our ongoing, multi-media series about unemployment in Ohio, ideastream® brings you Towns on the Edge [view], the stories of three small towns hit hard and fast by layoffs. In this latest installment, we'll talk about what life on the frontline of this economic collapse is really like. We'll hear from reporter David C. Barnett about the series, from the mayor of an Ohio town that came back from the edge over the last decade and from employers who have to make tough decisions and deliver the worst news to some of their most loyal employees. Be a part of the conversation Wednesday morning at 9.
