Older Workers remaining in and returning to the Job Market in Record Numbers

According to my own research and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics this trend will continue. BLS state that while the total labor force is projected to increase by 8.5% between 2006 and 2015, when broken down by age group some very different trends emerge. In particular, workers aged 55-64 are expected to rise by 36.5%,
Overall, workers aged 65 and over are predicted to make up 6.1% of the total labor force by 2016, up from 3.6% in 2006.
