The NY Times has a great article in today's edition that confirms what I have observed and suspected. There is massive hiring discrimination for the 50+. Please read:

Despite 30 years experience and a distinguished career in radio news plus 3 years in communications for government and non-profit firms, I can't get hired for jobs for which I know I am qualified. I've only gotten one phone interview in 11 months. It's got to be age discrimination! Just about all my friends in this age group are unemployed. I suspect that many in this age group have drifted to tea bagger and fox not news solutions. This group is huge and could be a tremendous political force if organized. I'm willing to start something in that direction or contribute to any like-minded organization that is now in place. I have one idea: How about a tax credit for hires aged 50+?
