Older Male Workers and Job Mobility in Australia
AbstractExtending the working life of older workers has been identified as an important policy goal in the context of an ageing society. However, existing research has highlighted the role of job separation and labour force discouragement for older worker labour force outcomes. In contrast, research of older worker job mobility is scant except that it has been established that older workers have lower job mobility rates than younger workers. This paper addresses this void through an analysis of ABS Labour Mobility Survey data. Findings have important implications for the Federal government's predominantly supply sided policy reforms aimed at older workers.
