 Young People Bitter About Older Workers in the Workplace

Young people are getting bitter about older workers in the workplace, a recent report has pointed out.

Care provider Anchor conducted a study of 2,000 adults which revealed that two out of five people in the 18 to 24 age group felt 62 year olds are 'old' indeed and there are not too many jobs for them.

Many of them were of the opinion that older workers were less productive and slow in their work and therefore should draw a lesser salary.

Jane Ashcroft, chief executive of Anchor, said: "Casual ageism has no place in society and the negative perceptions bear no reality to the lives of the over-60s, who are active, energetic and contribute hugely to many of the most successful businesses and organizations in the country. The dismissive attitudes towards the over-sixties are a sad indictment of attitudes in this country."
