There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  The Aging Baby Boom: Implications for Employment and Training Programs
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The post-World War II baby boom generation has had a profound effect on public policy and society at large. At each stage of the life cycle, this generation has changed the demand for public services. The social and policy phenomena associated with the baby boom result from a complex interaction of (a) the sheer numbers of people in this generation, and (b) the coincident occurrence of important events and developments in society and the economy as a whole. As the baby boom generation turns fifty, it is important to reconsider the implications for U.S. employment and training programs. This paper presents background information about the baby boom generation, its characteristics, how it compares to other generations, and factors affecting this cohort.
