The feelings older workers have about age discrimination and being condemned to joblessness isn't just in their heads. According to The Office for National Statistics (ONS), the number of older workers who have been unemployed for 12 months or more is 50 percent higher this year than it was last year and marks the biggest increase across all age groups. So is there really an "Over 50s Curse" when it comes to finding work? Is there such a thing as being too old to get a new job?
