Seniors and Youth: MEPs adopt a resolution to increase their employment levels

News On 11 November 2010, MEPs adopted a resolution proposing initiatives to increase the level of employment of young and older within the European Union in order to reduce the weight of fiscal and social security systems pension funds.

Steadily increasing longevity and low birth rates may place a heavy burden on rising generations, says the resolution on "the demographic challenge and solidarity between generations" drafted by Thomas Mann (EPP, DE) and approved with 440 votes in favour, 122 against and 43 abstentions. Access to employment should be at the core of policy-making between generations, as younger and older people face higher levels of unemployment, it adds. European Youth Guarantee MEPs called on the Council and the Commission to devise practical measures - one of which should be a "European Youth Guarantee"- to ensure that after a maximum of four months' unemployment, young people are offered a job, an apprenticeship, additional training or combined work and training. "Fifty-plus" employment pact initiative The text also proposes that the Commission and Member States take "a fifty-plus employment pact initiative" to increase the share of workforce aged over 50 to 55%, eliminate early retirement incentives, combat aged-based discrimination and to develop incentives and opportunities for workers over the age of 60 to pass on their knowledge and experience. New anti-discrimination rules A majority of MEPs also called for new anti-discrimination legislation on access to goods and services, "as many older people face discrimination when trying to purchase insurance, holidays or car rentals". This call was not backed by the rapporteur, who believes that no new anti-discrimination legislation is needed and tabled an alternative resolution. Active ageing MEPs also called on the Commission to develop a proposal to make 2012 "the European Year of Active ageing and Solidarity between generations", which will highlight the contribution of older people to society.
