Opinion: Are employers using the pandemic as cover to shed older workers? (MarketWatch)

MarketWatch: Opinion: Are employers using the pandemic as cover to shed older workers?. “The labor market has never been easy for older Americans, and now there is fresh evidence that the COVID-19 crisis is making it even worse. A new report by the Retirement Equity Lab, part of the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis at New York City-based The New School, says that unemployment rates for workers 55 and older has topped those of mid-career workers for the entire length of the pandemic. It’s the first time since 1973 that such a gap has existed for six months or longer.”
