Retirement Age being scrapped
So, the government is scrapping the ability for employers to retire people at 65, see BBC News - Fixed retirement age to be axed.
This won't affect your state pension rights, well until they stick that up as well, but means an employer can't make you retire.
What annoys me with this is we have massive unemployment in the under 25's who are at the start of their working life. If more people are going to carry on working beyond their retirement age, then it means even fewer jobs for young people. The upshot of this is the young people will be in an even worse state with their pensions as the sooner you start paying into a pension the better the return, which is in the long term going to create an even bigger problem.
Also, I would much rather our young people were given the opportunities and the self confidence being employed brings, rather than getting demoralised and depressed by being unemployed.
