Increasing participation among older workers: the grey army advances

1 Sep 2012
Description

This report from the Australian Human Rights Commission looks into the negative and positive outcomes of a increasingly mature age work force. Successive editions of Treasury’s Intergenerational Reports (IGRs) have noted that Australia’s intergenerational compact was at risk in coming decades on two fronts:  From a quantity challenge: Australia’s ageing population means there will be a big increase in numbers of the aged relative to numbers of workers. From a price challenge: As the Australian Government heavily subsidises health spending for the aged in particular, the fact that the cost of delivering health care tends to rise over time relative to other costs in the economy means an additional strain.  Those potential problems associated with an ageing population are now well known.
