AnnotationACTION comments that the over 50s are at a marked disadvantage in competing for jobs, and that age discrimination unrelated to ability is leading to a waste in skills and experience. This pamphlet makes the case for an experimental yearly income allowance for the long-term unemployed over 50s who may be debarred from taking part-time or temporary jobs because of the system of weekly earnings rules.
