More and more, Boomers who leave full-time employment want to continue to be productive in some way. It isn't just a desire to keep busy and engaged -- it is also driven by a need to supplement the income from retirement plans and Social Security.
A very attractive option for Boomers could be part-time work. Working part-time offers more flexibility, social interaction, and income that may provide a modest cushion. While it seems that most part-time work for Boomers is in the low-paying retail and hospitality industries, there are some areas in which part-time pay is significantly higher.
