AARP: Unemployment for 55+ Rose 331% Since 2000!

This gave even me pause. It came out a year ago, and  it sure explains a lot:

Last Decade Spelled Disaster For Older Workers: AARP Analysis Shows Number of Unemployed Among Workers 55+ Skyrocketed 331% from 2000-2009

So no, you’re not alone, far from it. For us, and a few other select categories, it’s no recession, it’s a Depression – with a capital D.

Luckily, AARP has also been working hard to provide job-hunting resources for us.
