Flex Work for Boomers

It's little wonder we boomers want flexible work schedules in our encore and retirement jobs—we've gotten used to flex options. More than a quarter of over-50 workers enjoy a high level of flexibility in their employment right now. For men, the figure is 28%; for women, 26%.

A little more than half have a moderate level of flexibility and this circumstance is equal between women and men. There are some workers, of course, who have few or no flex options: 20% of men, 22% of women.

The graphic above is an unofficial representation of the data. For the real chart (and link to the 2005 research), visit the web site of Boston College's Center on Aging & Work.
