This bias against those out of work is long-standing, although it has gotten worse over time. Talented people over 40 who have lost a corporate perch are pretty much unemployable; I cannot tell you over the last 15 years how many people I’ve seen retire early (and at a modest standard of living) who’d much rather be working. They are the high class version of this problem.
We need to advocate not just for additional weeks for the 99ers, we need to bring recognition to hiring practices that discriminate against the unemployed as well as the age of the unemployed. It's becoming more and more widespread and it has to stop.
