On the Dec. 27, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko:  I talk with a long-term unemployed person who triumphed and how he did it---Wonderful lessons for us all!

Then, my wife Barbara and I tackle 2015's thorniest email queries:   a workplace vendetta, a powerless manager, an idealist who's a big-time procrastinator, a burned-out teacher, a divorcee who makes more money not earning income.
