Unemployed older workers struggle harder to find new jobs

Unemployed older workers struggle harder to find new jobs


The quest for re-employment is a journey of transition, Shimmel
says. “Eighty percent of you who travel it will end up in a better
place.”




But that road is often harder for those over 50 or so, according
to both statistics and anecdotal evidence. Like others who suddenly
find themselves unemployed, older workers struggle with their sense
of identity, but they may face discrimination because of their age.
Many will never command the pay or benefits they did before the
economy took the most precipitous dive since the Great Depression
of the 1930s, experts say. They will work longer than their fathers
and mothers did and may never enjoy the retirement their parents
had. But they may find that the ordeal offers an opportunity to
test their mettle and reconsider what they value in life.

Like food? Shelter?

Heaven, perhaps? Sorry, those "feel good " about your ordeal articles piss me off.
