“If it be a man’s work, I’ll do it.” – King Lear

My heart breaks when I read stories of people in their fifties who have been unemployed for six months or more.  They are too young to retire, but old enough to suffer from ageism.  And the longer they stay out of the job market, the harder it gets.  I’m glad the recent unemployment report was better than expected, but my heart goes out to the millions still who have been without a job for months on end.
