Proof – though perhaps it’s obvious, that ageism in the workplace and in pursuit of jobs is not limited to the UK. A useful round up of survey results from the US, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand has been published by the website Gitnux, which credits thirteen sources. Examples of statistics: in India, 62% of employees believe ageism exists ion organisations; South Korea had the highest rate of age discrimination in Asia, with 20.3% of employees experiencing discrimination. And 80% of Americans say they have either suffered it or know somebody else who has. (Image from Pixabay shows an urban street in Korea)
