Pushing fifty: Should we get over-50s back to work?
Wednesday, 1 February
Why are so many over-50s leaving the workforce – and can we get them back? With people changing how they live post-pandemic, large numbers have left the labour market. What made them make this shift? And how are the NHS and care crises also playing into this? Ros Taylor is joined by Scott Corfe, director of Public First, to discuss.
“The overwhelming majority of these people who have dropped out of the labour market don’t want to return to work.”
“For people who left in the pandemic it seems like for many this is a retirement story, rather than an ill-health story.”
“Brits seem to have a more negative views of work than Germany and the US.”
