Ageism and Employment

By the year 2024… 25% of all american workers will be over the age of 55.according to the U.S. Department of Labor.  What do those numbers mean for the ever-changing workplace?  Might it cause a greater divide between young and middle-aged workers?
Could it force some older workers to be pushed out or even challenged to get back into the workforce?
