We’re building a content-rich Web site that will include at least 100 video interviews with people who are 50-plus and jobless, as well as interviews with economists and other experts on the subject of older workers in today’s economy.
We’ve already completed in-depth interviews with 26 job seekers who are 50 and older, two economists from the Urban Institute and two senior AARP executives. We’re traveling across the country for the project to cover as broad a range of industries as possible in our interviews.
Eventually, we’re also planning to produce a documentary that captures the impact of the Great Recession on baby boomers.
If you’d like to be interviewed and be a part of this project, please let us know. We may be coming to a city near you!
