An interesting article at CNNMoney discusses the difficulties older workers have finding new employment after losing their jobs. A study discussed in the article reveals the troubling fact that even workers in their mid-forties are now facing heavy challenges finding new employment. From the article:
"Anti-age discrimination laws don't necessarily help when we need them most, during economic downturns. In the U.S., strict state laws had no effect on unemployment for the aged and even might have been detrimental during the Great Recession, according to a Federal Reserve study released this spring."
Age discrimination continues to be a challenge faced by many workers in today's economy, and an issue that will continue to receive close attention in the future.
