Older American unemployed workers affected by the Economic Disaster beginning in 2008 or earlier need a fair shake in the job hunting market. Age discrimination is illegal. Enforce it. Make potential employers accountable for practices such as turning away applicants because of lack of work for 6 or more months. Credit reports have too much weight in this depressed job market today. Tell companies to quit relying on them so heavily until we resolve our massive unemployment CRISIS.
Congress can also help by STOPPING OUTSOURCING OF AMERICAN JOBS, INCLUDING ALL THOSE CALL CENTERS, giving us more jobs to apply for.
