Denmark -Survey on age discrimination -November 25, 2013

There is still age discrimination on the labour market. According to a poll, more than a quarter of people over 60 who retire do so unwillingly. Some of the employees surveyed said that they felt opportunities for older workers were so limited that they felt compelled to simply withdraw from the labour market. Only one third said they stopped working due to health reasons. Employers don’t seem to bother for a higher share of older people in the workplace.
