Rice & Roses #1301 : Aging in the Eighties

Maggie Kuhn and Max Roffman, advocates for the elderly, discuss their experiences and feelings about aging in the eighties. "Aging in the Eighties" takes a look at the injustice and lack of fair treatment among older citizens; confronts the issue of social changes that need to be made, such as the integration of older people into the workforce; encourages reform in the workplace, not just for the elderly, but for everyone; and stresses that senior citizens in the workforce are needed to teach younger generations about teamwork because their involvement will improve the community as a whole. The guests share their views on subjects that range from ageism to social security. Recorded on November 26, 1982, and aired on November 29, 1982.
