Doing a younger person out of a job.We have a few people nearing their 70`s where I work & they are playing the same card.What will happen to our youngsters seeking employment if our older generation do not retire after 67ish?mactheknife is correct. McCririck depriving a worthy (and more able) younger person of a job.... though still not sure how you can call it "work". What does he actually do other than get paid to go racing for free?If Big Mac wants to argue on age discrimination grounds, we'll soon have the same 50% youth unemployment rates as Spain. Is that what Big Mac wants?I suspect the only reasons he has gone on with this charade is some ambulance chasing legal firm have offered to represent him for nothing..... and maybe he has need of a payoff?
lol if you use that argument he would win for age discrimination. Employers should have the flexibility to employ the best people for the job, with the proviso that society as a whole benefits from some level of job security (but obv not the security provided by many EU countries which has led to devastating levels of youth unemployment).
