Abstract and Keywords
With the increasing numbers of older Americans and the need for employment at older ages, the aim of this chapter is to explore recent trends in older workers’ employment and retirement patterns by various subgroups such as age, gender, race and immigration status, income, and occupation. A discussion of how these trends may differentially affect older workers’ future opportunities for continued work or retirement will also be provided. In addition, the major U.S. government policies and programs for individuals who stay in or return to the workforce at later ages are explained. The chapter ends with a discussion on the implications of these subgroup trends and future directions for research on subgroups of older workers.
