Troy, MI -The proportion of engineers and scientists in the 50–59 age bracket is twice that found in the rest of the labor force, according to a survey from Kelly Scientific Resources. Thirty-two percent were aged 50–59 versus 16% reported in U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Twenty percent were over 60. Only 6.2% of the rest of the workforce fill this age group. "Companies should realize that there is going to be a shortage of experienced professionals in the next ten years," says Rolf Kliener, a senior vice president at Kelly Scientific Resources.
