65 and up and looking for work

New York Times, October 26, 2009

There are more Americans 65 and older in the job market today than at any time in history, 6.6 million, compared with 4.1 million in 2001, the New York Times reports. In addition, nearly half a million workers 65 and older want to work but cannot find a job—more than five times the level early this decade and this group's highest unemployment level since the Great Depression, according to the Times.
