20 Journalists Chosen for Training on Working Longer

The National Press Foundation has chosen 20 journalists for an in-depth training on working longer.

Over four days, journalists will learn about older workers and the labor market; new models for retirement; the future of Social Security and retirement savings; the gig economy; workforce discrimination; and how workers’ health impacts all of that. They’ll also learn what other countries are doing that the U.S. isn’t.

The training will take place March 11-14 in Washington, D.C.
