Nuevos hallazgos sobre la voluntad de seguir trabajando después de la edad de la jubilación
No hay vuelta atrás: a la generación del baby boom alemana le falta poco para  llegar a la edad de la jubilación. Esta evolución tendrá probablemente su punto álgido entre 2020 y 2030, ocasionando, si se jubilan anticipadamente, inmensas cargas financieras para la generación trabajadora más joven. Sin embargo, hasta ahora la discusión pública sobre la prórroga de la actividad laboral más allá de los 65 años ha sido escasa. Los investigadores Frank Micheel, Juliane Roloff e Ines Wickenheiser analizan cómo el estatus socioeconómico influye en la voluntad de permanecer durante más tiempo en el mercado laboral. [...]
Nouveau regard sur la volonté de rester sur le marché du travail à l'âge de départ à la retraite
On ne peut pas faire machine arrière : la génération des baby-boomers allemands va bientôt atteindre l’âge de la retraite. Ce phénomène va probablement connaître un pic entre 2020 et 2030.  Si la génération du baby-boom part à la retraite de façon précoce, la charge financière qui va s’ensuivre va être énorme pour les générations suivantes.

Les chercheurs Frank Micheel, Juliane Roloff et Ines Wickenheiser ont examiné la manière dont le statut socioéconomique influence la volonté de rester plus longtemps dans la population active. [...]

This book, edited by Sonja Drobnič and Ana M. Guillén, addresses tensions between work and private life. The amount of time spent on work, nature and design of the job, and working conditions in general influence the degree to which people are able to combine work and other important parts of life, such as family, care and social life. The eleven chapters of this volume explore job quality, job security, working conditions and time-use patterns of individuals and households. They also look at institutional contexts, such as family policy and other country characteristics. [...]
