A very interesting article and video in “USA Today” talking about the growing number of 60-70 year olds that have decided to keep working. This is not surprising. There are many reasons to keep this group of people active:
Dramatic developments in Life Extension will redefine ageing in coming years and for many people, retiring at 60-65 when they feel they still have much to offer, the wisdom and knowledge that comes with age and experience, is not an option.
Also, for the first time ever, in many developed countries, the percentage of the population over 65 is equal to or exceeding the percentage that are 14 or under, averaging around 17%. This has been concerning governments for some time. Keeping this growing aging population healthy and active has become crucial if we are to avoid unsustainable growth in Government debt and unsupportable strains on our health and social security systems.
Sara Rix senior strategic policy adviser with AARP Public Policy Institute, says the percentage of people in the 65 to 69 year old age group in the US still in the workforce has increased from 18.4% in 1985 to 32.2% last year. The number of people 70 to 75 in the workforce is also increasing.
This is going to be the next paradigm shift for humanity, and it’s good news for everyone.
