Workers who are 55 and older are increasingly forced to endure onerous, even dangerous jobs that do not provide the pay and benefits needed to allow them to retire. The Economic Policy Institute and the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis hosted a virtual event that shined a light on this problem and outlined policy recommendations that would alleviate the plight of older workers. The panel featured a discussion of the findings of SCEPA and EPI’s joint chartbook on older workers and retirement.
