Business

The consumer marketplace for aging is a booming one, what with the baby boomer cohort turning age 65 at a rapid clip. But Business & Aging at ASA means something more: We analyze and advise on retirement trends, ageism in marketing and workforce issues. How long should we work and will there be enough of a caregiving workforce to take care of us as we age? You’ll find thoughts on these questions, as well as perspectives on smart retirement planning, the complexities of long-term-care insurance  and recareering and many other such transitions in later life. The business of aging is our business, so check in here for the latest information and news.

Labor Market Discrimination: A Bleak Outlook for Older Women

posted 06.14.2017

By Teresa Ghilarducci and Kyle Moore

Older women face worse age discrimination than men in the labor market. Call it intersectionality (the intersection of age and sex discrimination) or call it more of the same—whatever the name, the reality is that older women get paid less for their experience and education than men, and older women have a more difficult time finding work if they are unemployed.
