Unemployed Woman Melinda Pfeiffer Writes To Santa: 'All I Want For Christmas Is A Job'

Like millions of jobless people across the country, the holidays aren't looking bright for Melinda Pfeiffer, a North Carolina woman who has been out of work for ten months.

With no where to turn, Pfeiffer wrote an emotional letter to Santa -- published in her local newspaper -- asking for one Christmas present : a job.

In her letter, Pfeiffer sent well wishes to her fellow struggling unemployed Americans, hoping they would also be able to find work, reports.
