They call it the "Vampire Theory". The idea that when it comes to the workforce, employers constantly crave the fresh blood of younger workers.

According to a recent study, ageism is the most common form of prejudice in the UK ahead of sexism or racism.

Panorama gained exclusive access to a comprehensive undercover project which reveals remarkable levels of discrimination against a job applicant on the grounds that she is considered too old at the age of 39.

And they want us to 'work' until we are 70!

The only place that will employ you at that age is the public sector ... but you retire at 60 there :rolleyes:

All offer jobs to those over 45, who are on the scrapheap.

It is a fantastic career opportunity to be stacking shelves in the middle of the night for the over 50's rather than taking from the state in benefits.

Russia had the right idea, and thankfully we are following suit. Everyone has a job working for the state, and nobody will be excluded from working.

yes, I saw this. Rather depressing viewing, although I'm sure things aren't as simple as the prog made out. Has Panorama always been so sensationalist?
