Report: Baby Boomers Making Big Impact in Oregon Job Market

March 1, 2007


Three new reports show Oregon's over-50 population is becoming the workforce of the future by not retiring. Instead, they're being re-hired by employers, or going back to school for more training. Report contributor Joyce DeMonnin with AARP Oregon says employers will rely more and more on older workers.

"About 80 percent of people 50 and over, now plan to work beyond retirement age."

The report shows in just over a decade, more than a quarter of Oregon's population will be 55 and over, making it the fourth oldest state in the nation. Although economists are predicting a worker shortage in the near future, employers will have some choices.

"There's a wealth of qualified workers out there if they think outside the box and look at a less traditional worker."

The reports are online at www.aarp.org/ or or at www.pcc.edu.
