California Dream Special: Graying California

  

As a part of the California Dream's "Graying California" project, KQED's Forum takes a look at the growing numbers of Californians working after the age of 65.

California seniors are increasingly working well into their golden years, with nearly 20% of them age 65 and older now in the workforce. Many continue to work because they need the income. But others simply want to keep working, even when they could afford to retire.

The program, hosted by KQED’s Michael Krasny, will explore the causes and implications of the aging workforce with a panel of experts and live calls from around the state.
