296. many in their fifties "are between a rock and a hard place"
In my hubby's company there were middle managers laid off all in their fifties. In order to get an exit package they had to sign an agreement that they would not sue for age discrimination. So, how many people in their fifties have lost their jobs, some who have worked for the same company for over thirty years? They are expected to go out in a diminishing job market to find something else-the competition is fierce vying for a job with hundreds who are younger.

So, how are those who have no job to survive until they can get any benefits?
