U.S. OLDER WORKERS: THEIR EMPLOYMENT AND OCCUPATIONAL PROBLEMS IN THE LABOR MARKET
Abstract:Problems in the workplace tend to increase with advancing age. The passage of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967 was an important response to growing concern with the biases against some older workers in employment practices. Wider use of a variety of techniques and practices such as the introduction of flexible work arrangements, special job counselling and selective placement, retraining and reeducating the general public, particularly employers, to the great potential of older workers, would enable a number of older workers to be gainfully employed. Older workers must be helped to realize that their waning years are not meant to be frustrating and fruitless.
