The Gray Panthers
The statistics tell the story. Gray labor – 55-years and beyond – will account for 90 percent of the increase in the labor market between 2008 and 2018. That’s 90 percent. Demographics are driving this, of course. Americans are living longer and extending their working lives. Some nearing retirement shun it; others without paychecks scramble to secure new jobs. Many older Americans simply want to stay engaged and active, yet an increasing number are so pressed financially, they face a grim future without earned income. CSM
Power to the Geezer!
