• Short Summary

    Unemployed men register with a job agency in America.

  • Description

    Titles read: "JOBLESS - 22 STATES TO PAY THEIR UNEMPLOYED".

    United States of America.

    Good shots of unemployed men gathered around an outdoor notice board looking at job adverts. Then we see various shots of men at a new job agency, one of 22 run by different American states to help unemployed find work.

    Natural sound as a man at the counter takes the details of a man called Mr Kelly and asks him to fill out a card and mail it in. Several shots of numerous men and women dealing with the cards that have been sent in and using adding machines to collate information. A large machine sorts the cards.
