Last night's 60 Minutes episode about unemployment was a bitter pill for Boomers. We are the segment of the unemployed who are unemployed the longest--most likely to be laid off and least likely to be hired elsewhere. Some of those interviewed had lost everything--used up their savings, lost their homes. Watching an ex-mid-level executive picking through garbage for recyclables to sell was close to unbearable. You can see the segment here--watch at the risk of your own mental health. Me--I was looking for the nearest iceberg to float away on.
