Labor Market Discrimination: A Bleak Outlook for Older Women

Teresa Ghilarducci ()

No 2017-05, SCEPA working paper series. from Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis (SCEPA), The New School

Abstract: Older women face worse age discrimination than men in the labor market. This results in lower pay for older women than for older men, and a more difficult time finding work when unemployed. This short paper outlines why this might be the case and offers an outlook for the future.
