Over 60s must keep working as Britain 'is running out of workers'
Tim RossBusinesses are being told to change their attitude to employees in their 50s and 60s or be left behind with a looming shortage of qualified staff. Older workers should be seen as the new “untapped source of labour” because ministers are limiting the number of immigrants allowed into Britain, according to a government guide.
Steve Webb, the Pensions Minister, told The Daily Telegraph he regarded older workers as “an untapped resource”.
“People have often said, 'how are we going to tackle ageist attitudes amongst employers?’ The demographics are going to sort that out for us,” he said.
