According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), older workers are those 45-64 years of age. It appears I too am an older worker ?.
Curiously, this is accurate as it’s the feedback I also receive as a recruiter. What is the term given if you are over 64 years of age? Oldest worker? Ridiculous labels.
As Swedish philosopher, Kierkegaard said, ‘Once you label me, you negate me’, which is how I feel about this ‘old’, ‘older’ classification.
I prefer DCA’s interpretation of an older worker, as ‘however older is defined’.
