According to the Alliance for an Experienced Workforce, "by 2010 nearly 1 in every 3 hourly workers in the United States will be over the age of 50.” So why are employers in a panic???

The baby boomer is one on the largest generation that has molded the workforce to be what it is today. Employers now are worried that if they lose their mature workers who's going to take their place. Will this candidate have the same skill level as the employee they are about to lose? So many questions, but not a lot of answers, so what should the employer do?

3. Partner with organizations such as: AARP or any other baby boomer website
