Around the world, from Finland to Kenya, the retirement age is rising. Money has gone from pension funds, governments need workers to stay on longer to keep the economy going, some simply want the opportunity to be able to work into their 70s. So do we need a retirement age?
“ensure that older British workers are judged on their skills and abilities rather than their age.”
Already 2.2 million Britons- due to retire this year- are delaying it because of the pensions crisis.
And – broadly speaking – we’re living longer.
So, for economic and health reasons, should we be allowed to work as long as we want ?
Or, as this article puts it, time to retire retirement ?
