Employer Motivations for Hiring and Retaining Older Workers

December 12, 2005

Abstract

Employers who hire or retain older workers can substantially ease the economic pressures created by an aging population. Employees who work an extra year increase national output and further support their own needs before dipping into government programs for retirement and other needs. At the same time, each extra year of work increases taxes contributed to pay for government and to reduce the pressure on revenues from other social programs.
