    Washington, DC - - (August 2, 2018) - - 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.

Given employers’ need for talent, it makes great business sense to hire experienced workers, as demonstrated by additional AARP research. “With rich work histories, varied experiences and expertise, older workers want to work, they’re ready to work, and they need to work,” said AARP Vice President of Financia
