According to a new AARP survey of experienced workers, nearly 9 in 10 work for financial reasons, but approximately 8 in 10 either enjoy or feel useful doing their work.

Today’s workplace is more diverse – including employee ages – than ever. By 2022, workers age 50-plus will comprise 35 percent of the labor market. Given employers’ need for talent, it makes great business sense to hire experienced workers, as demonstrated by additional AARP research.
AARP and Oxford Economics recently released a report on New Hampshire’s “Longevity Economy” that shows households headed by people 50 and older generate half of the state’s gross domestic product, and over half of jobs and state taxes. Though only four in 10 of New Hampshire’s population is 50+, they generated $25 billion in consumer spending.
AARP is now accepting applications for New Hampshire State Director. The current State Director, Kelly Clark, has been promoted to the position of Northeast Regional Vice President for AARP which created this vacancy.
We all know Social Security helps families, but we rarely stop to think how much it helps the larger economy. In fact, Social Security fuels almost $1.4 trillion of economic activity nationally – and almost $6.6 billion right here in New Hampshire – according to a new study by AARP’s Public Policy Institute.
New research from the US Department of Labor shows that one in four Americans between the ages of 44 and 70 are interested in starting their own business or nonprofit in the next five to 10 years.
