The Implications of Part-time Work for Our Aged

By Irving Barshop

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1957

Many elderly people would not choose to retire if it were not mandatory at their companies, the author reports. For many aged Americans, retirement means a substantial reduction in standard of living as well as an overabundance of leisure time. This is why an increasing number of retired people are seeking part-time employment, according to the author. He describes the experience of his agency, Federation Employment and Guidance Service (FEGS) of New York, in assisting elderly people to find part-time work. The author further discusses implications of this trend on clients' health, well-being and families. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.33, no.4, Summer 1957, p.386-393.
