"have you seen those old pensioners go hiking? "
Have you seen those 55 year old building workers trying to hump 20 Kilo sacks of cement or shovel concrete around? Try it you might like it. They get no sick pay at all for the first two days and then only 80% so they think twice about calling off sick.
Check out the CH statistics for yourself if you think that Swiss OAPs are fitter than Brits.

I think that over 50ties who still work on a building site after a lifetime of carrying hods of bricks and 30 kilo sacks of concrete would not take too kindly over you hinting that they may be too weak to do their job, newsflash; you may not be able to lug sacks of concrete but be sure that they can.
It also seems that you cherry picked your statistics that say that older employees are more prone to sickness, my cherry picked statistics tell otherwise, so I think it safe to say that the truth is that older workers are not more or less sick than younger ones however they do seem to take longer to recover from major illnesses.
Thing is when we, the older guys, have gone you should better be sure that your automated systems are working, because the up and coming dumbed down generation that you need to do the work to pay for your
pension doesn't seem to possess the brain grease to make it work, (so be sure to have your sheep in the dry by the time you
are 50) that and the fact that the age pyramid is going to be standing on it's head in a few years is going to create the imbalance of not enough workers paying into the system, unless of course you get immigration, and we see how good that idea has worked, eh?
So what to do with the old guys and gals, off to the carousel at 30?
Oh and by the way I call bullshit on saying that the "elderly" are not as fast learners or adapting to new fangled stuff.
