This raises concerns about how long-term unemployment will affect older workers re-employment prospects and future retirement income. In light of these developments, this book examines how older workers employment status has changed since the recession- what risks unemployed older workers face and what challenges they experience in finding re-employment- how long-term unemployment could affect older workers retirement income- and what other policies might help them return to work and what steps the Department of Labor has taken to help unemployed older workers.
