Age-friendly Jobs Increases, But It Is Not All Good News

There is both good news and strange news regarding age-friendly occupations in America. According to a recent study titled “The Growth of Age-Friendly Employment” by three renowned economists, the age-friendliness of around three-quarters of U.S. jobs grew between 1990 and 2020. In particular, the number of people employed in what these economists refer to as “above-average age-friendly jobs” increased by 49 million during this 30-year period.
