Please read this article if you are over 45

I found this article in the Styles section of today's New York Times. I will take some lines out of context, but I suggest you read the entire article:

  • For those over 45, the unemployment rate is the highest in at least 60 years
  • The gentleman in this article applied for 600 jobs and just got 3 interviews, 2 over the phone. The job where he interviewed on site went to someone half his age
  • 95% of the companies to which he sent job applications never acknowledged him
  • 90% of the people he worked with lost their jobs

When you wake up in the morning be thankful you have a job!
