[White House Conference on Aging, 1981. Employment. Report and Executive Summary of the Technical Committee.]
Sykes, James T.; And Others
This Technical Committee Report on Employment begins with a discussion of trends in work and retirement, examines attitudes toward work and retirement, and describes the economic and social consequences of work. An analysis of the present situation focuses on: (1) employment barriers and opportunities; (2) cost of employment; (3) productivity and age; (4) on-the-job training; (5) flexible work arrangements; (6) policies that encourage early retirement; (7) work decisions by older persons; (8) social security; (9) employer pensions; (10) mandatory retirement; (11) health and life expectancy; and (12) unemployment. Key issues which should be addressed by the White House Conference on Aging and the public and private sectors are then enumerated in terms of principles applicable to the needs and rights of workers of all ages. The appendices contain recommendations on employment in general and on part-time employment. An executive summary of this report is also included which lists major findings, key principles, and committee recommendations. (NRB)
