The Employment Problems of Older Workers.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
With most data taken from 1970 or 1971 averages, this report presents a picture of the positive and negative aspects of the older worker's position on the labor market. The report, prepared for the White House Conference on Aging, shows that the participation rates of men are continuing to decline while the rates of women increase, that opportunities for part-time employment have grown, and that unemployment rates for older workers are lower than for younger workers. Also, it was found that older workers have less absenteeism and higher rates of production than younger workers. However, the total employment picture for this sizable minority is bleak. (GEB)
