Women Still at Work PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Women Still at Work free pdf From Betty White and Meryl Streep to Toni Morrison and Nancy Pelosi, we're surrounded by examples of women working well past the traditional retirement age. In fact, the fastest growing segment of the workforce is women age sixty-five and older, even in today's bleak economy. Women Still at Work tells the stories of hard-working women in many fields and the reasons they're still on the job, with a focus on women in the professional workforce. Women Still at Work draws on national survey data and in-depth interviews to show not only the big picture of older women in the workforce, but also to provide personal profiles of a number of working women. Their stories showcase some of the key themes women choose to stay at work--including job satisfaction, diminishing retirement savings, the need to support children or parents longer in life, exercising the hard-won right to work, and more. Women Still at Work shows employment to be a positive and rewarding part of life for many women well beyond the expected retirement age.
