Unequal Prospects : Is Working Longer the Answer? Paperback / softback
Part of the Framing 21st Century Social Issues series
In light of the recent financial crisis and changing economic landscape, McNamara and Williamson present and analyze the possibility of working longer.
Including a range of potential policies (e.g., further increasing the age of eligibility for full Social Security benefits, allocating more government resources to retraining and job search assistance for older workers), this is one of the major approaches currently being discussed by policy analysts inside and outside of the government.
Emphasizing the role of inequalities and diversity among older adults, this book provides a framework for thinking about the advantages and disadvantages of working past the current retirement age. This book is for Sociology of Aging, Social Inequalities, and Social Problems courses.
