Employers cite work ethic as reason for retaining older workers over younger ones

According to the most recent Kiplinger Letter (6/2/09), the pattern of past recessions is changing in at least one respect with the current recession: employers are choosing to retain older workers over younger ones even though their pay may be higher. The reason: Their work ethic. Employers say they "don't need to tell oldsters to turn off their iPods, remind them how to dress or to come in on time."

What should younger workers learn from this? When it comes to getting and keeping a job during tough economic times, there's nothing more important than good, old-fashioned work ethic.
