96. Never in my lifetime...
It is, and always has been quite common for elderly ladies (muslim or otherwise) to wear a headscarf (not for religous reasons).

... have I seen an "elderly" lady wearing a headscarf on the job.

I imagine some ladies might wear a scarf to keep their hair out of the way if they are operating machinery, and waitresses often wear hair nets to keep their hair out of the food, but a lady working as a clerk or a receptionist or a secretary? When have you seen that?

Besides, "elderly" ladies are retired.
