Some good news in today's paper

An article in today's Wall Street Journal, reprinted in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, talks about how aging baby boomers are nudging some forward thinking companies to do more to retain older employees. Take a look

This is great news for older workers, and it shows what we have been saying for six months now -- that the tables are slowing turning in favor of job seekers over 40. Efforts to retain workers over 40 should eventually lead to efforts to hire workers over 40. ...Employer perspectives do seem to be changing, slowly.

The "labor shortage" we hear so much about is not really a shortage of labor, it is a 'shortage of perspective' on where companies should be looking to attract and retain talent. There's a shortage of workers in their 20's and 30's now compared to the boomer years, but every day at Jobs4.0 we see that there is no shortage of skilled, motivated and energetic labor for companies enlightened enough to hire people in their 40's, 50's and 60's.....
