The decline accelerated with the 2008 recession and the rate fell to a 36-year low of 62.8% at the end of 2013 and, he says, “has hovered around that level since.” The rate was at 62.9% in January 2015.There’s been a sharp decline in labor force participation among younger workers (aged 16 to 24) and prime-age working adults (aged 25 to 54), according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics figures, while older workers have been holding on to their jobs. “Coincidentally, a larger share of baby boomers, an exceptionally large cohort, continues to participate at historically high levels,” O’Keefe says. “Fewer Americans have or are seeking jobs and that has long-term implications for the U.S. economy and economic policy.”In the fourth quarter, the labor force participation rate of younger workers was just 55.5% after holding steady at about 66% from 1998 to 2000, and participation by the prime earning group (ages 25 to 54) was unchanged at 80.8% after peaking at 84.4% in early 2000. However, participation among those approaching retirement had slipped only slightly from the mid-2010 post-war record rate of 65.3% to 64.3% in the most recent quarter and was 18.6% for those 65-plus, just shy of a two-year high of 19%. continue reading »last_img read more
