Commentary: Immigration as Solution to Aging Workforce

In her regular "My Time" column in the Washington Post, Abigail Trafford argues that with "more people living longer and couples having fewer children, the influx of immigrants--who tend to be young adults--helps stabilize the balance between generations." In fact, immigration postpones the day of reckoning "so that we can start the debate now and develop a national blueprint to meet the needs of our aging population."
