‘Boomers Aren’t Fading Away Easily’

Worcester Business Journal

November 7th, 2012 by 

In a story in the Worcester Business Journal’s “By the Numbers” issue, Bryan Engelhardt, assistant professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on the economic phenomenon of “baby boomers” who, instead of retiring, continue to work.

Although the financial collapse of 2008 has continued to negatively influence the U.S. economy, Engelhardt reported that job openings are on the rise and that it is becoming increasingly easier to find employment. Furthermore, as the value of the U.S. dollar continues to increase, manufacturers who export American-made products will continue to benefit.

“That’s a potential way to help,” Engelhardt said.
