Late-career Risks in Changing Welfare States

Comparing Germany and the United States since the 1980s

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
Motivated by ongoing debates over welfare state retrenchment and growing economic insecurity, this book compares the situation of older workers in Germany and the United States over the past three decades. Both nations are seeing a rise in insecurity for older workers, but the differences in support programs, pensions, and retirement options have led to differing outcomes for workers faced with early retirement or job loss.
