Current level of unemployment among older workers worse than in 2009

Earlier this week, the Over 50 team traveled to Washington, D.C.

We returned to the Urban Institute and re-interviewed Richard Johnson, senior fellow and director of the director of the center’s program on retirement policy, to update the information about unemployment among older workers that he provided in 2010.

We will be adding his complete interview to the expert section of our site soon, but above is a brief video clip from our recent interview in which he compares the current level of unemployment among 50+ workers to the level in 2009, when the Great Recession was declared over.
