Netherlands: Report Shows Older Workers Not Getting Hired

UWV's annual report of Dutch vacancies shows that only two percent of vacancies in 2011 were filled by workers 55 and over. The report ("Vacatures in Nederland 2011") also states, among other things, that the proportion of companies workers over 55 in service decreased to 54% from the 60% indicated by companies surveyed in 2010.

In response, UMV says that it will make 150 additional coaches available working for free as guides for older workers.
