Social Policy Review 18

Patrick Grattan

Policy Press

This chapter presents a forthright, non-academic perspective on the debate from the position of an influential lobbying organisation. It notes that Patrick Grattan is directly involved in advising government on the age legislation and this chapter completes the set by recounting the establishment, development and running of the leading pressure group in this area, The Age and Employment Network. It views the rapid growth of interest in this area as largely a positive phenomenon since 1997, and observes the many business gains, particularly for those firms and their employees who have ignored the stereotype. It outlines the key campaigning issues for the organisation and in particular raises those salient issues about making the job market a better place for people in mid- and later working life.

Keywords:   age legislation, The Age and Employment Network, job market
