Abstract

The impending retirement of baby boomers would affect four out of 10 Maine workers in the next 25 years, in a state with the highest median age in the country. Many businesses in Maine overlook mature workers, who typically want flexible schedules and health benefits. John Richardson, commissioner of the Department of Economic and Community Development; Phyllis Cohn of AARP Maine; and others recognize that businesses need to start recruiting and retaining older workers. Maine industries that will be particularly affected include legal services, installation and maintenance, business managing, education, and public administration. With details on initiatives to retain such workers.
