"Roxane Larouche, 64, an operating room nurse at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, is just a year away from official retirement age, but has no plans to leave her job anytime soon. Since her younger husband changed careers during the recession and returned to school to become a pharmacist, the couple has relied on their savings and Larouche’s income ... Larouche is among a growing number of older Americans who are working past their traditional retirement age, and in doing so, reducing opportunities for younger workers in a difficult job market, according to a study by Commonwealth Corp., the state’s quasi-public workforce development agency."
