Older Workers in Australia / Pushed out of jobs says Age Discrimination Commissioner

YOUNGER bosses who nag older workers to take redundancies, tell them they\’re too old to receive training or deny them promotion are forcing thousands into early retirement.

By also refusing to hire older workers they are adding to the nation’s ballooning health and welfare costs by pushing otherwise productive people on to the aged or disability support pension.

That’s the view of Age Discrimination Commissioner Susan Ryan, who will release a report in the coming months arguing age discrimination is costing the economy $10.8 billion each year.
