Will employers want to hire older workers because the cost of health insurance?

Postby clementius » Thu Mar 31, 2011 12:59 pm

We all know that premiums in the United States are mostly based on the age of the employee. Will anyone want to hire an older worker if the company kicks in a portion of the premium? Now with the retirement age for social security and people living longer how will people survive with the cost of medical care and medication. Will employers want to hire younger people to keep their pool of employees younger to reduce costs of health insurance? Are you concerned about this matter? Related Resource: retirement living

As far as I know, age discrimination is illegal here in the US. I think it is important for the employers to work out a plan so both the older employees and employers could benefit from it.

I think the problem with a lot of discrimination, is that while legally it isn't allowed, in reality, it still occurs. I'm sure if you show up to an interview with gray hair and wrinkles, they aren't going to tell you that you're too old for the job. They just won't call you back.
