    2009 to 2011, I suspect the numbers are worse. Women approaching 60 like myself, who were laid off in that period, have not been able to get jobs, ran out of unemployment, could not keep up with mortgages, COBRA, etc. We are now on food stamps, Medicaid and whatever other assistance is available.  

    yeah, just what we were planning for our golden years...
