A day in the life: America's long-term unemployed

David Watson is one of <a href='http://money.cnn.com/2012/06/11/news/economy/long-term-unemployment/index.htm' target='_blank'>more than 5 million long-term unemployed</a> Americans. The former Marine and resident of Sanford, Florida, has been without a job for more than a year despite a relentless pursuit for employment. He has interviewed for more than 60 positions, but he believes a bad credit score keeps him from being hired. Today, the home Watson shares with his 14-year-old son and a second piece of property he owns are in foreclosure. Father and son are living day to day, selling items around the house to make ends meet. CNN photojournalist John Couwels provides a look at a day in the life of how this American family is dealing with the uncertainty and pressure of long-term unemployment.
