LAS VEGAS (AP) — More than two years after Bud Meyers lost his job as a Las Vegas Strip bartender and nearly eight months after he exhausted his unemployment benefits, the 55-year-old is certain he will soon be homeless.

He is among a growing number of men and women who no longer qualify for unemployment benefits because they have been out of work for so long.

"Exhaustees" are searching for work and help across the United States. But their situation seems particularly bleak in Nevada, where unemployment, bankruptcies and foreclosure rates are the highest in the nation and job creation is at a crawl.

Nearly 40,000 Nevadans have exhausted their benefits and hundreds more are expected to join those ranks this year, according to state data.
