The article discusses a study about the relationship between generational diversity and age, and the implications of that relationship for human resource management. Data from the "Labour Force Survey" were collected during recessions, which indicate that labor market opportunities for older workers have improved compared with conditions in the early 1990s. It is suggested that workers aged between 50 and 65 in 2010 will have different attitudes than those who will turn 50 in 2030.
