How will Australia deal with an ageing workforce?

26 Jul 2016
Description

Age and Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Susan Ryan, steps down this week after five years in the job. Ryan is frustrated at the slowness of workplaces in adjusting to the reality of an ageing population.

RN Breakfast spoke to Ryan about the changing demographics of Australia's workforce.
