"In New Jersey, about 600 jobless people a year try self- employment"

Bloomberg had an article recently on how some unemployment programs foster entrepreneurship.
Founding a business isn’t for everyone. Hours are long, initial earnings puny, and the failure rate high even in boom times. A weak economy makes everything harder.
For some displaced workers, however, self-employment may be their best hope. Entrepreneurial aid to the jobless is typically aimed at older, educated workers who lost good jobs in battered industries. With the national unemployment rate above 9 percent, such candidates face slim odds of finding appropriate work through a standard job hunt.
If this is of interest to you, there is a session or two planned for the Job Search Jam Sessions on this topic.

Note: you can pay online, or at least reserve a ticket and pay at the door. The reservations at least help us plan properly for how many folks we will need to feed.
