Seattle Times Online (05/21/03) p.72; Armas, Genaro C.

According to Census Bureau statistics, the number of older Americans in the workforce grew by as much as 50 percent between 1980 and 2002.

According to Alliance for Retired Americans Executive Director Edward Coyle, more Americans are expected to put off retirement because they are unsure if they can afford it.
