Wrinkles and Unemployment

Due to the recession and lay-offs, many older members of society have found themselves unemployed and back on the job market. Many feel that age may play a role in finding a new job. Competition is very high for available positions, and some believe that employers are overlooking older job applicants due to age discrimination. The Associated Press reports that "such concerns suggest age discrimination might be playing a role. There is certainly evidence that suggests that employers are reluctant to hire older workers." Those on the job hunt are updating their resumes, as well as their looks. Some workers have undergone cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, to remove years from their face and improve their chances of employment. One unemployed woman was quoted in saying she "looked refreshed" after removing the line between her eyebrows to help in her job search.
