50 years of working and I've been on UI

50 years of working and I've been on UI
only 3 times but, that's in the past 8 years. It just keeps getting worse. I feel sorry for young people today trying to find a job. If it's between me and a younger person for a head to head fight for a job, they don't stand a chance. Experience wins every time!

Some trades yes,others no. I've been told point
blank by employees that they only hire young "clones

i dont know about that....
seems ppl over 40 who are unemployed are having a hard time this go round, be it higher health ins. cost or maybe the misguided idea that you cant teach an old dog new tricks

I think the health insurance costs
have a lot to do with it - even though those additional costs as they relate to "older employees" may only be perception not based on actual statistics. I know many older people who are a damn sight fitter than a lot of younger people (they certainly take a lot less meds

tbh it's what I've noticed
but hey to me ALL Americans take way too many "meds" - everyone seems to have SOMEthing wrong with them But younger people here are just as likely to have "conditions" requiring meds as older folks, yes. and FWIW - don't get your knickers in a knot - it's just MY opinion (to which I'm entitled

I concur, yet we hear the daily groans of age
discrimination on this forum. I find it hard to believe since for me the hardest obstacle is getting hired in a field of senior citizens with years of 'experience' ...even though most of their so ed experience is useless garbage, and most can barely turn on a computer, much less use one

you have to be in the middle, i think.
Neither too old or too young and inexperienced. Maybe 34 - 39, non-smoking, graduate degree and not fat. Not too fit either ("if he's taking care of himself, he can't work 15 hours a day.") And another thing...who the hell do you think invented computers? Twentysomethings? <BR

omg! you are SOO right on about the not too fit
part, I thought it was just my imagination, but, I've noticed that the more fat, downtrodden, and pasty faced you look the higher your chance of getting hired, the exception being sales jobs in which I think the opposite is true. I totally think that you have something there
