Haley talks about her first time in the unemployment line.

After losing her job, Haley says she had to go to the unemployment office for the first time in her life, which proved to be an eye-opening experience.

"I saw people, men in business suits. I saw people who wanted to retire. I saw people with families," she says. "I would have to say, I was ignorant before I went to the unemployment office. I thought people [who] were unemployed were unmotivated, uneducated, and that's not what it is like right now in this world."

Now, Haley says she has a completely different opinion about what it means to be unemployed in America.
