For some parts of the state, it's already here and has been since before the last recession. For other areas, the full effect is yet to come, but it's expected, according to the Minnesota State Demographic Center. It's the coming workforce squeeze. It's a demographic phenomenon planners have been warning about for years, and now it's here. By 2035, Minnesota's 65-plus population is expected to grow by 93 percent, or 784,000 seniors, while losing 5 percent of its workforce-age population, or 170,000 people ages 15-64 as Baby Boomers pass the 65-year mark.
