Netherlands -IT employer wants to cut pay of older employees -February 20, 2013

Union officials have told the media that IT company CapGemini is looking to cut the pay of some older workers by up to 30%. In January 2013 it was admitted that the company had begun talks on cutting the pay of less productive older staff because they ’cost more than they deliver’. This was motivated with the argument that there was a ‘mismatch between what people earn and what they can do’ and the relationship between older and new workers’ pay.
