Over sixties ready and willing to work

From The Panel, 4:38 pm on 1 August 2018

Massey University's study of 11,000 older New Zealanders finds them happy, healthy, and eager to find work. However in 2016 there were more over-65s registered job-seekers than 18 to 24-year-olds. That's a reversal of the data from five years earlier. It appears although their bodies and minds are willing, employer interest is weak.
