This year the National Party announced their intention to increase the retirement age from 65 to 67. Recent research from Statistics New Zealand shows that workers in this age group are an important part of the workforce. Older workers experience less discrimination (fewer than 1 in 10 workers), feel positive about their job prospects and are keen to stay working full-time.
