Willis project, “Occupations, Work Characteristics, and Retirement Timing: Findings from the Health and Retirement Study.” Reporter Catey Hill wrote: “Stressful, physically demanding and inflexible jobs are associated with early retirement, which means few workers in these fields are 66 and older: registered nurses; freight, stock and material handlers; machine operators; and production supervisors or foreman.”
