For jobless over 50, a challenging search for work

This photo taken Friday, Oct. 18, 2013, shows Luanne Lynch, 57, in San Gabriel, Calif. Lynch was laid off from her clerical job in March and still hasn't managed to replace it. It was her third layoff in the past decade. Americans searching for jobs are finding a lot of hesitance to hiring them. Older people have higher rates of long-term unemployment and a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research illuminates some of the challenges they’re facing.
