This news adds more fuel to the growing feeling among many economists that it will likely be several years before the jobless rate falls to what is considered a normal level. The continued atmosphere of uncertainty, experts say, has potential long-term consequences for businesses and employees alike.Author(s): Knowledge@Wharton
