Volunteer Jobs Still Strong with Older Workers
While many older workers in the USA continue to struggle to find meaningful full-time careers it has not deterred them from continuing to generously give of their time as volunteers.
Few Facts from Bureau of Labor Statistics:
* Men Spend slightly more time volunteering than Women.
* Significantly more Women then Men volunteer.
in September 2009, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. About
63.4 million people, or 26.8 percent of the population, volunteered through
or for an organization at least once between September 2008 and September
2009. In 2008, the volunteer rate was 26.4 percent.
