Today’s the day some people are more aware of Times Winged Chariot clipping at their heals, and it’s true none of us are spring chickens, but that doesn’t explain why more than a third of us, according to the TUC, believe they won’t be able to do their job after 60.
‘The report, Going Strong, shows the great majority of employees have no significant health impediments to prevent them working up to 65, or beyond if they wish, yet poor health is the most common reason why people over 50 leave a job, with only half retiring early by choice,’ it says in their newsletter.
And with the ‘demographic timebomb’ ready to explode (this is the bit we talk about pensions and council tax), older workers should use the age discrimination act to make sure they’re not pushed out.
Same old story…
