Older males drop out of work at rising rate

first_imgOlder males drop out of work at rising rateOn 28 Mar 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. The number of men aged 55 to 65 not in work has doubled in the past 20 years.A report by the Institute of Directors found that while many men may have fallen victim to age discrimination, it is not the main reason behind the figures.And author Richard Wilson warned the trend may be aggravating skills shortages, causing difficulties for business.He concluded that age discrimination legislation would be ineffective. “Experience suggests that such legislation is unlikely to be effective in promoting the employment of older people.”Instead, Wilson recommended a range of procedures.“The Government must keep the cost of labour low. In particular, it should avoid introducing measures that increase the cost of employing part-time staff – a popular form of employment for older people,” he said.Wilson also advised the Government to “encourage personal pensions or keep the cost of stakeholder pensions low” in response to 45 per cent of employers being more inclined to hire an older person if they did not have to contribute to their pension.Other reasons given for the decrease in older men in the workforce include the prevalence of occupational pensions and early retirement, industrial restructuring and a reduction in the demand for unskilled labour.The study found that in 1979 just over one fifth of men aged 55 to 65 were not employed. The proportion in 2000 is double that. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Sherwood: I left legacy at Spurs

By

first_img “I’d had Harry Kane since he was 11 or 12 don’t forget. It makes a lot of difference, I know them better than their parents as footballers.” Sherwood must revive Villa who have scored just 12 goals in 25 league games to slip into the relegation zone. Christian Benteke has netted only three times this season after recovering from a ruptured Achilles he suffered last April. Sherwood hopes his experience with Kane and Emmanuel Adebayor, after rescuing the striker’s Spurs career, will help him revive the Belgium international and insisted he must be Villa’s spearhead. “I don’t think Christian thinks he’s cracked it yet,” said Sherwood, who is without Nathan Baker (knee) and Philippe Senderos (calf). “He’s a really good lad – he speaks better English than me as well. I know he was a beast up there and can bully people. “Anything crossed into the box, he used to find it and eat it up – we need to get back to that. “He’s a centre forward and they have to be the focal point of your side. If they’re in the game a lot you’re not doing badly.” New Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has insisted his record as a manager is “there to be shot at” as he prepares for his top flight return. Villa are third from bottom in the Barclays Premier League after just two wins from their last 21 matches. Sherwood took charge of Tottenham for 28 games last term, winning 14, and insisted his record of results and aiding Spurs’ youngsters stands alone. “Look, I think (Mauricio) Pochettino has done a really good job there, but mine’s still up there to be shot at,” said Sherwood, who replaced the sacked Paul Lambert on Saturday. “He’s inherited a good bunch of young players who were developed by myself. “He’s willing to play them as well, there are a lot of big stars there and he could have discarded (Ryan) Mason and gone with (Nabil) Bentaleb, but he’s not done that so fair play to him. “I respect him for that. It’s good for me – I left a bit of a legacy there with those young players and he’s carried it on. I admire him for that. “If I hadn’t resisted the club wanting to loan him out last January, he wouldn’t be Harry Kane now. “He’s had to be very strong mentally, he’s had to fight it. They haven’t always sung ‘He’s one of our own’. Press Association The 46-year-old will take charge of his first game as Villa chief when they host Stoke on Saturday. It is his first match since May 2014 when, as Tottenham manager, Spurs beat Villa 3-0 at White Hart Lane. last_img read more

Women of Troy outlasted by Arizona State on road

By

first_imgRiding a two-game winning streak the USC women’s tennis team couldn’t continue its success on the road, falling to No. 15 Arizona State (14-5, 6-2) 6-1.Senior Maria Sanchez was handed her second loss this season, although her singles record still stands at 30-2.Arizona State’s Kelcy McKenna, the No. 19 singles player in the country, matched Sanchez’s every move and recovered from a 1-6 second set loss to prevail in three sets, 6-4, 1-6, 6-4.In a rare doubles appearance, Sanchez was paired up with sophomore Danielle Lao to take on the No. 18 doubles squad of McKenna and Micaela Hein. The tandem of Sanchez and Lao fell 8-2 to the Sun Devils pair in the No. 1 spot, marking another usual loss for the Women of Troy (13-6, 2-4).Lao, who has struggled as of late, had a strong outing on Friday, taking down No. 11 Jacqueline Cako 7-5, 3-2, with Cako retiring because of an injury midway through the second set.Freshman Kaitlyn Christian was scratched from Friday’s match after a mishap in practice Thursday afternoon.“[Christian] ran into a pole at the end of practice on Thursday and suffered a bad bruise overnight and she could barely walk on it Friday,” USC coach Richard Gallien said. “Since Valeria [Pulido] was only cleared to play singles, that’s why we were unable to have a third doubles.”Filling in on court three was Pac-10 Player of the Week junior Alison Ramos, who was a perfect 4-0 last weekend. Against No. 106 Micaela Hein, Ramos fell easily 6-3, 6-2 on a day when nothing seemed to be going right for the Women of Troy.In her return to singles play, sophomore Valeria Pulido fought hard, albeit in defeat, losing to Arizona State’s Hannah James 6-2, 2-6, 6-3.Senior Cristala Andrews had another three-set match, her third in the last two weeks, on court five. Andrews fell 3-6, 6-0, 6-3 to Michelle Brycki, while fellow senior Lyndsay Kinstler would also suffer a defeat at the hands of Ashlee Brown (6-4, 6-1) in the sixth spot.“We will be fine,” Gallien said. “It’s easy to point out the bad luck we’ve had, but it just isn’t interesting. I expect a great week of practice and a very motivated group come Friday.”With UCLA ahead, the Women of Troy look to avenge an earlier season loss to their crosstown rivals.last_img read more

A Better Approach to Design/Build

By

The most ambitious project I’ve ever worked on is a spectacular, über-green home in the foothills west of Silicon Valley. The owners, Linda Yates and Paul Holland, contacted me in May 2006 to request that I brief their project team on LEED for Homes, then in its prepilot stage. Six years later, in November 2012, I had the pleasure of leading a tour of the house as part of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild conference. I invited Fine Homebuilding editor Brian Pontolilo to tag along. Brian heard a lot that day about how an integrated process enabled us to achieve extremely high performance goals while building a very complicated house—without sacrificing sanity or our professional relationships. He asked me to share my insights here. Off on the wrong foot Not long after that initial conversation, I met with the project team at Hill-Glazier Architects (now HKS/Hill Glazier Studio) in Palo Alto. In attendance were architect Bob Glazier, a builder, a landscape architect, a lighting designer, and an interior designer. I delivered the requested spiel about LEED for Homes, responded to questions, and was out the door in 90 minutes.A few days later, Linda called to tell me they wanted their new home to be a model of sustainability—as green as possible in every conceivable aspect. She also wanted to reach for LEED Platinum. She asked me to arrange for expert guest lectures to help their team members—who had been selected for their design excellence rather than green expertise—achieve these goals. Recalling the set of plans I had seen in Hill-Glazier’s office, I realized that these goals would be extremely difficult to achieve with a design that was well downstream.“You don’t need… This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img Start Free Trial Already a member?
