Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 01/11/2019, including: Older workers are driving job growth as boomers remain in workforce longer. Americans 55 and over made up about half of all employment gains in 2018, according to an analysis of Labor Department data by The Liscio Report. Among the factors behind the numbers: Older people want to work longer. The low, 3.9 percent unemployment rate provides them more opportunities as businesses struggle to find qualified job candidates. And lots of workers are simply aging into the 55-and-older bracket while many prime age-Americans remain sidelined; T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T are selling access to their customers’ location data, and that data is ending up in the hands of bounty hunters and others not authorized to possess it, letting them track most phones in the country.
