From the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, a new study examines the types of hobs available for older workers by surveying job postings by employers.
“While employers often say they are open to employing older workers, evidence of discrimination in audit studies suggests reason to worry. One question is: ‘what jobs do employers really want older workers to do?'”
“Overall, the jobs available to older workers are similarly distributed geographically to the jobs available to workers more generally. Furthermore, the pay offered for jobs open to older workers tends to be better than the pay of- fered for jobs in general.”
