    Older Workers – Aging Workforce Issues for Job Search - Carolina Newswire (press release)
    Statistics from a number of companies demonstrate that workers over 50 sometimes have a hard time finding work. But, the reality is that today’s 50-year old is not the same as a 50 year old of yesteryear. The argument can and should be made that older workers today are much different that older workers of the past. For example, Boston College’s Center for Retirement Research suggest that today's workers are better educated that even those of 10 years ago. They are more physically fit. Physical demands of jobs are lessening as most manufacturing goes overseas. Labor-intensive positions have been and will continue to be lessened by machines and technology advances.
