`노인은 일하고, 젊은이는 놀고`…취업자 60세 이상>20대 Korea's labor force appears to be graying,... as more older Koreans continue working later into life. Workers over age 60 outnumbered workers in their 20s in the second quarter of this year. Statistics Korea says the number of workers over the age of 60... came to almost four million in the April-to-June period,... outpacing those in their 20s -- which stood at around three-point-eight million. The 60-plus age group first overtook those in their 20s in the second quarter of 2014,... and they have been trading places ever since. In the second quarter,... the 60-plus population grew at a much faster pace than the younger generation. On top of that, more elders are joining the workforce to clear their remaining household debt,... while those in their 20s are finding it hard to get decent jobs due to the slowing economy.
