President Obama is imploring Congress to pass a bill to help get folks out of the unemployment lines. It calls for tax breaks for small businesses and encourages banks to lend money to small businesses so they can hire more people.

One local woman who lost her job in January says U.S. companies should also quit taking their jobs to foreign countries.

"Where I worked at before," said Alecia Kelly, "they sent a lot of the jobs to Mexico and I think that's probably one of the biggest things that's hittin' home right now."

Alecia says she's not making as much money as she did in her previous job, but she's cut corners and she's making it work for her and her two children.
