No, S***, Sherlock

Older workers may have a lower unemployment rate, but once they are tossed out, it is next to impossible to secure a full-time gig--in any occupation.

Despite being experienced and reliable workers, all companies see are dollar signs, and they back off. Better to get cheap bimbos who will work for nothing and not stick around.

But then we have CEOs telling politicians what is needed is to jack up the ages for Medicare and Social Security so we can get killed off:

When older workers do find re-employment, the compensation is usually not up to the level of their previous jobs, according to data from the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University.

In a survey by the center of older workers who were laid off during the recession, just one in six had found another job, and half of that group had accepted pay cuts. Fourteen percent of the re-employed said the pay in their new job was less than half what they earned in their previous job.

Try one-eighth of what the old job was. That is my situation now, with substituting and a dinky pension.

Damn to hell WCSD and WEA for their criminal acts.
