SCEPA Paper on Older Unemployed Workers Makes SSRN's Top 10 List

SCEPA is excited to announce that "New Policies for an Older Unemployed Population," a SCEPA Working Paper by Director Teresa Ghilarducci and Economist Joelle Saad-Lessler, has made the top ten download list for the Social Science Research Network, (SSRN) for three different sub categories; Food Stamps and Food Assistance, Medicaid and Rates of Coverage. The paper outlines issues facing older unemployed workers, such as living with low incomes and without health insurance for longer periods of time due to increases in the duration of unemployment. The authors recommend expanding and reforming retraining programs to better accommodate the needs of older workers and the creation of tax incentives to encourage employers to hire older workers.
