Older And Unemployed

I think one slightly good thing about this recession (good in the sense of it could have been worse) is that while there are certainly older people getting completely screwed by it, to a surprising degree they haven't borne the brunt of job losses. I'm not saying they're more deserving of jobs than young people, I just mean it's pretty obvious that if you're above a certain age and you lose your job it's almost impossible to get a new one.
