在新加坡找工作,年龄高低真的有这么严重?

在新加坡,六七十岁的安哥、安娣还在做工,似乎是一件很平常的事,可是,最近情况好像有变?

在本地某知名网站,有一名长者诉说了自己因年纪大而求职不顺的经历。

“我在找工作,尽管我在这一行工作经验丰富,可是找了一年半了还没有找到。中介对我说,他们的客户只招35到40岁之间,或者更年轻的人。所以,如果他们知道我已经50岁了,就算符合工作要求,他们也不会考虑。

我认为公司没有权力以年龄为借口拒绝雇佣一个人。很多人虽然50多岁了,但却身体健康,看起来也很年轻,年轻人能做的很多工作,他们也完全能做。

我觉得政府应该制定法律禁止这种年龄歧视。年纪大并不意味着工作就不行。对于那些负责招聘的人来讲,我想说,你们也有50岁的时候,到时候如果这个社会说,你太老了,我们不再需要你,你会怎么想? ”

In Singapore, 50 years old already can’t get a job?

I have been hunting the job one and half year, even though I have had much experience in the field. But the job agencies told me their clients (companies) only want to hire max age range 35 to 40 or younger. So once they told them is 50, I will not given an opportunity although I meet the job requirements. I do not think that companies have the right to use age ad an excuse to refuse employment. There are people who are over 50 and have excellent health, look youner than their age and can perform as well as a 30 years old.

I think there should be laws to stop this age discrimination. An older person does no make her/him an inefficient worker. For those in charge to hire staffs, eventually when you reach 50 years old and the society tells you that you are not wanted, how would you feel?

Disappointed

看本地网友反应:

Justin Judith:是这样的。我20多岁的时候,经常纳闷:为什么我们这行没有50多岁的人呢?我以前还以为他们都退休了,现在才知道,他们失业了!现在的人结婚都晚,如果35岁结婚,孩子上小学的时候,他们就失业了….这太可怕了! !

Ke Yi Yong:歧视无处不在。有些工作就是有年龄的限制,没必要质疑,就接受吧,毕竟,你不可能永远年轻、有活力。

Rick Zi:对于政府来说,这个老人不算失业,而是退休,因为他已经6个月没有做工。所以,那帮蠢货还以为我们的失业率很低。
