Senior Workers

America is aging and so is it's workforce. In the next decade the largest age group in America will be those people between 55 and 64 years old.
Today, that age group makes up 10 percent of the workforce. But in less than 5 years it will represent 20 percent of the workforce. In "Senior Workers" WKSU's Mark Urycki shows us that as baby boomers age they will likely change the way we think about retirement.
