Ageing and Employment Policies: United States 2018
Working Better with Age and Fighting Unequal Ageing
In the United States, employment rates at older ages are comparatively high at 62%
among 55-64 year-olds against 59% on average in OECD countries in 2016. However, there
are large disparities across population groups. Early retirement remains a widespread
phenomenon, especially among workers from vulnerable socio-economic backgrounds. Preventing
old-age disparities in terms of employment outcomes and retirement income from widening
is crucial. This report looks at the various pathways out of the labour market for
older workers, and how employers can be supported to retain and hire older workers.
It examines the best ways that the United States can promote the employability of
workers throughout their working lives and more equal outcomes among older workers.
