A Jan. 1st article in the Seattle Times highlights older workers who are remaining in and returning to the workforce increasing numbers. The article quotes a job counselor with the Human Services Department’s Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens. According to the article, the percentage of senior citizens working has nearly doubled in the past two decades. Now roughly one in seven Washington residents 65 years and older is employed. The trend is expected to accelerate as more baby boomers approach retirement age.
