Almost every industry outside of high-tech is grappling with the problem of an aging workforce. The Baby Boomer generation is now aged between 51 and 69, with most of them either thinking about retiring or having already left the workforce. But things are changing fast, with Millennials, defined as young people who were between 18 and 34 years old in 2015, already making up the bulk of the workforce in the United States. By 2025, they are expected to encompass 75 percent of all workers across the board.
