Fewer Working-Age Americans

dg-workersWith statistics showing that 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day from now until 2030, the impact on our workforce will be dramatic. When the last of the baby boomers reach age 65 in 2029, nearly 25% of our population will be 65 or older. This is up from about 15% today. While 62% of Americans are between the ages of 18 and 64 and considered to be of working age, this percentage will drop to 58% by the end of the next decade. While this poses growing problems for Social Security and Medicare in the U.S., many other countries face even bigger challenges.
