  • Decreased performance
    • For physically demanding work only
  • Work uncommonly demands maximal effort
  • Non-physical advantages that older workers bring to a job are rarely measured
  • Workers abilities matched to the job results in less morbidity
    • Accommodation thinking rare in industry1
      • May change with ADA Amendments Act of 2008
      • Workers are changing (aging) and jobs are changing
