As baby boomers reach retirement age, members of Generation X are ready to take over management positions. The transition could be rocky and will create changes for the workforce. For starters, Generation X has much smaller numbers than the Boomers estimated 76 million. Estimates put this group at between 49 and 59 million. This shortage of replacements workers could be felt most in teaching and nursing, which already have labor shortages.
