Not Enough Young Workers to Replace Retiring Boomers, Myers Says

February 6, 2013

KQED-FM featured research by Professor Dowell Myers of the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy finding that California’s child population is declining. As a result, there won’t be enough young workers to replace retiring baby boomers, Myers said. “It’s been sneaking up on us gradually, and it has finally arrived,” he added. He said that the trend has wide policy implications, creating a need for more education initiatives.
