Matt Sedensky talks about issues related to older workers
Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with journalist Matt Sedensky about his reporting on older workers. They'll discuss his recent article "Will Surge of Older Workers Take Jobs from Young?" Sedensky reports that research economists at the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, who co-authored a paper last year on the subject, say there is not a bit of evidence to support this idea.
Matt Sedensky is the inaugural journalism fellow at The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. He is studying and reporting on the economic implications of the country's aging demographics and the effects on its workforce.
