Those with jobs are working later in life
Are older workers really faring better in this recession-wracked job market? Just 7 percent of workers over age 55 were jobless in October 2011, compared with a 9 percent national average, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported recently. That's a sizable gap, and it's been roughly that size throughout the recession. The health of the employment market for older workers is a critical factor in the future economic security of seniors, since job loss in later life can wreck even the best-laid retirement plan.
