Problems encountered in trying to serve older workers in a comprehensive employment program were found to be transportation, lack of support from the business community, and the negative image of the older worker. Steps taken to solve these problems are described, such as branch employment offices, publicity, volunteer service organizations, and job fairs. Although the Cleveland project described is open to all workers over 40, 80 percent of job placements have been for those over 50 and 26 percent for those aged 65 and over. (MF)
