Incentives for Older Workers to Remain in the Workforce

December 12, 2005

Abstract

Older workers could be induced to work longer, as improved health has accompanied longer longevity and as jobs that require hard physical labor have declined in relative importance. Many older workers have suggested that more flexible work arrangements, such as shorter hours and longer vacations, would enhance the attractiveness of working longer.
