I'm in the same boat, and many of us also saw 401K's decimated, and facing unemployment having to use what little bit was left to hold onto the home/car/medical expenses, etc. The future looks rather bleak, indeed.

I'm not a baby boomer but this terrifies me. I can't imagine being older, still single and unemployed.

We're a married baby boomer couple, but we're screwed, too...

Well after reading that article ~ it looks like everyone is screwed they just singled out the single women baby boomers in this aarticle ~ they should tell the whole story so folks see the big picture ~ yep my kids are grown up raising a grandaughter for a son who makes more money than we do & he don't give a rats as___ but we do it for our grandaughter whom we love dearly ~ I'm a 99'er just getting back on my feet after a stupid injury & my hubby works in construction & has been on & off for over a year ~ we live comfortably but not like we did when we were both employed but we get by ~ but what about those who don't get by ~ that's what this is all about ~ but who cares right ~ certainly not our ruthless politicians & government ~ as long as they get their paycheck & vacations they are happy campers ~ well I hope all of you ruthless policitians get what's coming to you in the very near future sorry I'm rambling but this just shouldn't be happening to anyone whether you are single or married younger or older ~ it just isn't right!
