New Jobs Available for Older Workers
Philadelphia Inquirer Online (05/21/01) Vol. 105, No. 20 p.4; Holcomb, Henry J.

Employment placement agencies claim that older workers forced into early retirement are better able to find meaningful work if they shed resentment toward previous employers and obtain or maintain moderate computer skills.

The Carney Group, an employment agency for mature workers, claims that older workers are more dependable and that there are not enough younger workers to fill all of the available jobs.
