Older Staff Working For Less?

working-longer-hourseA new report has found that people in their late 50s are working unpaid overtime – much more than they were ten years ago.

The TUC has found a quarter of a million workers aged in their 50s and 60s are completing the unpaid work, which suggests people are becoming more concerned with their income in their later years.

The report also said that around five million people worked over their normal hours last year. This could be a reflection of the current climate – with many people unemployed, those in work may be working longer hours because of fear of losing their job.
