Grey Power: Older workforce useful

A lobby group for seniors says there is no problem with an older work force.

Figures released yesterday by the Salvation Army show New Zealand's workforce is getting older and more people are working past the age of 65.

It criticised older people for keeping young people out of work.

But president of Grey Power Roy Reid says older workers offer different skills to those new to the work force.

“Many employers prefer to employ older people, because of their established work ethics. Also they use them to mentor younger people coming into the workplace,” says Mr Reid

Roy Reid says a higher quality of life has allowed many people to work for longer.
