Retirement is a stage of life where we can unwind and relax. For some individuals, the transition to retirement can be challenging due to ageism in society.
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.
