“More workers are staying on the job past 65”

“More workers are staying on the job past 65,” by Katie Johnston, Boston Globe

“As people live longer and remain healthier, many of them are staying in the workforce far beyond traditional retirement age. Nearly 20 percent of Americans 65 and older are either working or looking for work — the highest rate since 1962, according to the latest numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And as the baby boom generation ages, the share of these older workers in the labor force is expected to increase faster than for any other age group.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Are they really worried about health and LTC expenses as this article suggests or are these working elders taking the jobs their grandkids used to get just to make ends meet?
