Poll finds younger workers more likely to view older workforce as negative (The Associated Press)

June 06, 2019

Younger workers are more likely to view America’s aging workforce as a negative, according to poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. “I don’t think in things like IT and medicine you’re as effective a worker (at 65 years old) as you are at 50,” Katie Otting, a 29-year-old living near San Diego, told the AP. “If some 65-year-old is in a position that he’s not ready to quit because he wants a better pension and there’s someone else ready to take that job, they’re not going to replace him.” But others say older workers continue to earn money to spend, bolstering the economy and creating new jobs.
