Episode 9- The Senior Working Woman: The Benefits of Working After 65

If you’re a senior woman, age 65 or over, in the workforce, you are not alone. Statistics show that the number of senior working women has risen 4.2 percent over the past year to 17.4 million.

There are several reasons for this increase. Many older women are helping their families catch up after the Great Recession that ran from 2007 to 2009, which set back their finances.

Others have been forced to return to the workforce due to divorce which is splitting up a record number of older couples.

Some women are simply seeking self-fulfillment after years of taking care of the needs of others. Also, women usually have longer life expectancy and need to finance longer retirements. Whatever the reason, there are more senior working women than ever before.

Special guest, Joanna Styles, has had a variety of careers that have spanned over six decades which include working as a circulation desk manager for the Queens Borough Public Library in New York, owning and operating Styles Home Cooking Restaurant with her second husband, Joseph, and teaching for the Fulton County School System, where she recently was awarded ‘Paraprofessional of the Year’.

Ms. Styles shares personal stories about her work experience as an older woman and how it has benefited her financially, socially, and psychologically.

Ms. Styles lives in Atlanta, Georgia. She is the mother of four, grandmother of 11, and great-grandmother of 15. She attends Mt. Paran Church of God in Atlanta and has been and active member there for more than 30 years.
