Earning Opportunities for Older Workers considers the present-day barriers to continued employment of middle-aged and older men and women. Management, unions, and government officials discuss solutions to the problems of employment security, workmen's compensation, pension and insurance costs, and effective utilization of older workers. The aging worker is assessed with regard to changing capacities and skills, health, motivation, the need for counseling and retraining, and the feasibility of continued employment and flexible retirement practices. The problem of older women in the labor force is given special attention. The second half of the book is concerned with practical considerations and illustrations of methods for adapting jobs to fit the abilities of aging workers and for creating earning opportunities for older people who want and need employment but are no longer able to find it. Emphasis is placed upon what the individual can do for himself, and what the community, business, and government can do to meet the needs of people for continuing employment.
