Search For Work Challenging For Those Older Than 50

ROCKFORD, Ill. (October 22, 2013)—A new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that more than half of those 50 and older who've hunted for a job in the past five years say their search was moderately or very difficult and more than 4 of 10 said employers were concerned about their age.

Although the overall unemployment rate is lower for older people, long-term unemployment is higher.

Still, some companies are welcoming older workers, and some job seekers surveyed found a high demand for their skills and their experience.
