This is directed at any politicians who might have strayed onto this site. Why is there so much youth unemployment? Easy: there's too many old ones in work! How's about this pals? Get those who are representing us (our government) to rethink this unworkable strategy about increasing the working life of the great employed in this country to 67 or even later. My missus keeps giving me earache about every year there's another one to work before she gets an old age pension and I agree with her. Solution? Decrease the retirement age, not bloody increase it. Take it back down to 61 for women and 65 for men. All these positions currently occupied by the aging population can then be given to the youth of today at reduced rates of pay. SIMPLES! How many bankers have to work until retirement age? Not many I think.
