The unemployment rate in March for workers age 45 and over was 6.4 percent, the highest since at least 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking unemployment on a monthly basis.
But once older workers lose their jobs, Dr. Munnell said, “then it’s horrible.” They have a much harder time finding work again than younger job-seekers, and statistics appear to show that it is harder for them in this recession than previous ones.
Even if these people find employment the odds of having decent health insurance are not good.
Anyone think unemployed people don't need health care? Just asking.
