夹心族 doesn't seem to be in dictionaries.

「老了,誰來養?」成了一九六○年代戰後嬰兒潮、現在是勞動市場主力的四年級、五年級生最迫切的問題。將在十幾年內達到退休年齡的嬰兒潮世代,正是名副其實的夾心族──上有高堂父母,但往下一望,人丁稀疏,下一代可能沒有能力養他們。
"When you get old, who will take care of you?" This has become the most pressing question for the post-war baby boomers born in the 1960s who form the backbone of the labor market. The boomer generation that will reach retirement age in the next decade or so is a real "sandwich" group. Above them are their beloved parents, but as they look below they see precious few people. The next generation may not have the capacity to take care of them in old age.
