Dan Zehr, writing for the Austin American Statesmen, wrote a piece describing the difficulty that well-educated older workers encounter when trying to get hired in Austin.

In his article, Zehr quotes King, ‘“Austin is the hipster place, we put a premium on youth,” said Christopher King, director of UT’s Ray Marshall Center for the Study of Human Resources. “If you’re an older worker and you lose a job, it’s really tough to get back in.”’

The author goes on to explain the multiple reasons for why older Austinites have trouble finding good jobs; you can read the article here.
