The AARP Public Policy Institute released a report on the results of a survey of the experiences of nearly 2,500 workers ages 45-70 who've faced unemployment in the past five years.
The survey reports on reemployment and the steps people took to find work. It compares the new jobs of the reemployed with their prior jobs. It also examines the barriers jobseekers faced in trying to find a job, as well as various types of discrimination and other factors that affected the search for work. CEO Jo Ann Jenkins provided opening remarks and U.S. Department of Labor Chief Economist Heidi Shierholz gave the keynote address. The event also included a panel of thought leaders who discussed how best to deal with the problems facing the unemployed and how to better prepare for the next economic downturn.
