Baby Boomers face age discrimination in a tight job market

Baby boomers face age discrimination

Baby boomers who have been out of work for more than a year are finding it hard to get jobs that use their experience and skills. Unfortunately many employers are screening out boomers.

PBS has been doing a series on this subject. If you are over 55 and unable to find comparable full-time job, no one will admit or talk about age discrimination. There is an increasing amount of overlooked talent in the boomer generation.
