I highly recommend the recent award-winning documentary Just Eat It, which is at once shocking, entertaining and thought-provoking. Filmmakers Grant Baldwin and Jenny Rustemeyer spent six months living only on food that was being discarded for reasons that had nothing to do with edibility. Simply put, it’s a film about the shameful amount of food waste in America.

AARP has always believed in the value of older workers, that they can be a genuine asset in the workplace. Now we have new evidence to back that up. In the wake of the Great Recession, we took a fresh look at data about hiring and retaining workers who are 50 and older. The AARP study, “ A Business Case for Workers Age 50+,” which came out just last month, not only confirmed earlier research but also indicated that today the case is even stronger for keeping older employees in the workforce.
