This chapter discusses the employability issues that affect older people in the Glasgow labour market. It focuses on equality issues that are related to age, and highlights the significance of age discrimination in the context of it often being considered socially less important than racism or other forms of oppression. The chapter then reviews the recent trends in discrimination and human rights policies, along with their benefits and limitations for older people.
