Study Shows More Americans Work Past 65

A new report on working is released just in time for the Labor Day weekend.

It seems more people between the ages of 65 to 69 are working now than ever before.

An AARP survey found 30-percent of Americans between those ages are working, compared to 18-percent in 1986.

They say this is because traditional pensions are disappearing and due to high heath care costs.

The same survey found that 79-percent of people ages 38 to 52 say they intend to work past age 65.
