The End of Retirement

Hosted by

More and more seniors are finding it impossible to retire. Some take part-time jobs to supplement their social security. For others, the situation is more dire. Journalist Jessica Bruder has written about a new migrant labor force of senior citizens -- people over 65 who travel around for seasonal jobs, living out of vehicles, and often taking on intense physical labor.
