In the news is the impending approval of the bill against age discrimination for employment. That means anyone can apply for a job that he is capable of regardless of age. As of now, people at age 40 has a slimmer chance of getting a job mainly because of the age. Obviously, the seniors who are retirees have no place in the work force anymore mainly due to the age. But there is a cold reception to that proposed bill against age discrimination because the public do not believe that companies would follow such a law. It is the culture here to discriminate aged people and it is difficult to change that even by a law. I don't k now why seniors are given that treatment when it comes to employment. The standard retirement age here is 60 and that is still young. Being jobless at that age is like ruining the life of the retiree. It's good if the retirement pay is substantial as to last for 30 years or so but normally retirement benefits usually is good for 5 to 10 years of expenses only.
