Occupational Age Structures and Access for Older Workers.
Hirsch, Barry T.; Macpherson, David A.; Hardy, Melissa A.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v53 n3 p401-18 Apr 2000
Analysis of multiple data sets (1983-1998) shows that older workers face substantial barriers to entry in occupations with steep ratios of earnings and experience, pension benefits, and computer usage. Older men have limited access to jobs with union coverage. Older women are concentrated in occupations with flextime, part-time work, and day shifts. (SK)
