long-term unemployment

Is some form of intervention required in order to address the issue of long-term joblessness?

I read an interesting article that was quite discouraging. Unfortunately, it has been found that more Canadians are remaining jobless for longer periods of time. We are not just talking about workers in the manufacturing sector here; apparently, significant numbers of Canadians have lost their jobs and are experiencing long-term unemployment in areas such as accounting, executive work and education. Also, employment of factory workers is at a 30-year low.
