PEREZ-FERNANDEZ, Alberto  and  VENEGAS-VENEGAS, José Apolonio. Employment bonding in the elderly: the case of volunteer’s packers in supermarkets. Pap. poblac [online]. 2021, vol.27, n.108, pp.211-231.  Epub Dec 06, 2021. ISSN 2448-7147.

The objective of this article was to study characteristics of 50 senior citizen working as volunteer packers in four supermarkets in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche, Mexico. For the analysis of the variables, contingency tables and multiple linear regression were used. Results shown that on average, a person earns 31 pesos for each hour worked and increases 1.06 pesos for each customer served. The main reason that older persons continue to work is the lack of income (either pension or government support). Social policies poorly cover this sector and this situation forces many older people to work.

Keywords : Older people; income; lineal regression; quality of life.
