Most Boomers Reject Retiring Boston Herald Online (09/23/02) ; Chesto, Jon
A recent AARP survey indicated that 71 percent of workers over 44 years of age were confident that they could find work if they lost their jobs, while 67 percent believe age discrimination exists in the workplace. Over 66 percent of older workers plan to work well into their retirement years, but 15 percent of them have already been turned down for jobs based on their age. The AARP plans to use the survey results to encourage employers to include older workers in their workforces because many are interested in just working part-time. Only 28 percent did not plan to work during their retirement.
