Employers are less keen to hire workers over the age of 50. The article includes an interview with a man named Michael O’Reilly from the UK. He wants a job but says he can’t find one because companies don’t want people his age. “It’s horrible,” he says. “You feel your usefulness has passed.”
This is an all-too-common response from people over the age of 50 (not only in the UK but in the U.S, and other countries as well) who want to work. Hopefully companies will begin to see the advantages of continuing to employ people over 50.
Be honest and resolute in what you really want. Once you make this decision, go for it!
