‘I’ll Never Retire’: Americans Break Record for Working Past 65

According to the latest data from U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, almost 20% of all Americans 65+ are now employed. "I'll Never Retire," an article in Bloomberg.com, cites several different studies and explanations for the upsurge in older workers. Among the reasons people are working longer:
  • They need the money.
  • They like their jobs.
  • Skilled, experienced workers have become more valuable to employers.
  • Older Americans are healthier and living longer.
"It has become increasingly normal to be over 65 and working, as more and more boomers reach retirement age, said Torsten Sl√łk, chief international economist at Deutsche Bank. Now that one in five older Americans has a job, he says, “I would think this just continues to move higher.”

Over 50, Female and Jobless, Even as Others Return to Work

Editors Note: Patricia Cohen, New York Times Writer, chronicles the downward spiral of women job hunters in the last decade from findings revealed in a new study on long-term unemployment from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. LouisTen years ago, less than 25% of the unemployed women remained out of work for more than 6 months.
From 2012-2013, the unemployed women comprised 50% of the long-term unemployment rate. Ms. Cohen details the plight of Chettie Mcafee who was laid off from her job after 30 years. She is still looking for a job.
