With benefits cut off, long-term unemployed brace for a grim new year
Sat Jan 4, 2014
I got laid-off in July 2012… first time in my life. A department of 15 was trimmed to 10 people. At 52-yo, I was the youngest person to be let go. Of the 10 remaining people, the oldest was 42-yo. I consulted with an attorney who specializes in employment law and was told that the age discrim …

Transplant outrage has a solution: more organ donors
Sun Jun 9, 2013
Opt-out (vs. the current opt-in) system makes the most sense. But, until the process is changed. Give priority to those who have signed up vs. those who have not. For example...

African-Americans retiring earlier, with less savings
Wed May 22, 2013
