Older people in work on the rise

 The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said changes to working patterns meant more older people were still working.
Older people in work on the riseThe proportion of older people who are economically active has almost doubled in 10 years, figures have shown.

The Office for National Statistics report based on the 2011 Census in England and Wales found a rise from 8.7% to 16% for people aged 65 to 74.

The ONS said factors included more flexible working patterns and removal of the compulsory retirement age.

It said the total number of people aged 65 and over increased from 8.3 million to 9.2 million since 2001.

The proportion of people in that age group who were divorced also saw a rise from 5.2% to 8.7% over 10 years.

This compares with a smaller increase from 8.2% to 9% for the general population.

Some 5.3 million older people were married or in a civil partnership compared with 4.3 million who were married in 2001.

In 2011, 56% were living as a couple, 31% were living alone and 3.7% were living in communal establishments.

The report said: “A 2012 ONS publication highlighted that people are working longer than they used to; key factors may be increased life expectancy, the removal of compulsory retirement age, the increase in flexible working patterns, and economic pressures leading to rising living costs.

“This trend is likely to continue, as the age for women’s state pension eligibility increases to align with men by 2018.”

More UK workers earning less than living wage

The number of UK workers earning below the so-called living wage has risen to 4.8 million new research suggests.More UK workers earning less than living wageThe figure, equivalent to 20% of employees, is up from 3.4 million in 2009, the Resolution Foundation think tank said.

The living wage is set at £7.45 outside London and £8.55 in the capital.

Although employers are obliged to pay the minimum wage, there is no legal requirement to pay the living wage.

The left leaning Resolution Foundation said that it had used the most recent figures available, when the benchmark was calculated as £7.20 an hour outside London and £8.30 in the capital.

It found that 25% of women and 15% of men were paid below the living wage in 2012 – up from 18% and 11% in 2009.

The think tank also found that 77% of employees aged under 20, and two-thirds of restaurant and hotel workers, earned less than the living wage.

Report author and economist Matthew Whittaker said: “For most of the working population real wages have been flat or declining for many years and as a result more and more people have dipped below the level of the living wage.

“Britain has a sorry story to tell on low pay. Only a handful of our close competitors do worse and the large majority have much lower rates of low pay – sometimes half as much.”

Agency workers not being paid equally

The UK is failing to implement European rules designed to give equal pay to agency workers according to the TUC.
Agency workers not being paid equallyAgency workers who have been with a company for more than 12 weeks should be entitled to the same pay as permanent staff.

The TUC is complaining to the European Commission, saying that agency workers are still being paid less.

It comes amid a row about workers on so-called zero hours contracts.

The TUC claimed the government’s implementation of the Temporary Agency Workers Directive, which came into effect two years ago, was flawed.

It argued an exemption meant that if a worker was directly employed by an agency, the company did not have to pay that worker the same rate of pay as a staffer – although they do get paid for at least four weeks between assignments.

The TUC said there had been a big rise in these types of contracts, with more than one in six agency workers now on them, particularly in low-paid, low-skilled work.

The TUC wants these contracts banned and has now asked the European Commission to investigate the problem.

General secretary Frances O’Grady said: “The recent agency worker regulations have improved working conditions for many agency workers without causing job losses.

“However, the regulations are being undermined by a growing number of employers who are putting staff on contracts that deny them equal pay.

Zero-hours contracts, or casual contracts, allow employers to hire staff with no guarantee of work.

Employers say zero-hours contracts allow them the flexibility to take on staff in response to fluctuating demand for their services, in sectors such as tourism and hospitality.

Some employers have been accused of rolling over temporary employment in short-term amounts to get around having to pay workers full-time pay and benefits.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that 250,000 UK workers are on zero-hours contracts – around 1% of the UK workforce – though the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development thinks the figure is closer to one million.

Tattoos harm your job employability

Research presented to the British Sociological Association found that no matter how intelligent and articulate a job applicant is, if they have a visible tattoo, most would-be employers will secretly rule them out as looking “dirty” and “unsavoury” or even “repugnant”.
Tattoos harm your job employabilityEven employers who do not have a personal objection to body art would think twice about taking on someone with a tattoo because they fear it would damage their corporate image.

In a paper, being presented to the association’s annual conference on workplace issues, Dr Andrew Timming of St Andrew’s University School of Management, set out findings from a series of interviews with employers about perceptions of body art.

He spoke to a cross section of managers from organisations including a hotel, bank, city council, prison, university and bookseller.

Most said that tattoos carried a clear “stigma” for employers, with several expressing strong views on the subject.

“Respondents expressed concern that visibly tattooed workers may be perceived by customers to be ‘abhorrent’, ‘repugnant’, ‘unsavoury’ and ‘untidy’,” said Dr Timming.

“It was surmised that customers might project a negative service experience based on stereotypes that tattooed people are thugs and druggies.”

One male manager interviewed told Dr Timming: “Tattoos are the first thing fellow recruiters talk about when the person has gone out of the door.”

A woman added: “They make a person look dirty”.

Dr Timming said bosses’ concerns were usually based on perceptions of what their organisation’s clients might think.

“Hiring managers realise that, ultimately, it does not matter what they think of tattoos – what really matters, instead, is how customers might perceive employees with visible tattoos,” he said.

But he added that some images were easier for employers to forgive than others.

While in many cases flowers or small animals might just be acceptable for some, those most likely to prove a definite turn-off included spider’s webs on people’s necks, tears tattooed on to their faces, guns and sexual imagery.

UK employment to reach 30 million says CIPD

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) says employment should grow to a record high by 2015.UK employment to reach 30 million says CIPDIts study says the number of people employed should grow throughout 2013 to reach 30 million two years later.

The CIPD says that the reasons for jobs growth throughout a period of flat economic growth remain obscure.

It says underemployment – people taking part-time jobs who would like full-time work – has not grown significantly and does not explain this jobs growth.

A report compiled by the CIPD’s former chief economist, John Philpott, predicted a year of “slog” for those in work.

Dr Philpott, who heads the Jobs Economist consultancy, said workers could expect longer hours, static pay and limited jobs creation next year.

He says job insecurity will remain high and unemployment will rise to 2.63 million, because the size of the workforce will outstrip the number of jobs being created.

However, he expects the number of young people unemployed will fall below 900,000, moving away from the one million level it threatened to breach through 2012.

Dr Philpott said: “Our jobs outlook for 2013 is relatively optimistic in that we expect only a modest rise in unemployment. However, the fact that this can be considered good news merely underlines the harsh reality of current economic austerity.

“GDP may grow somewhat faster but 2013 will be another year of hard slog, with longer hours for those lucky enough to have jobs and a further squeeze on living standards for workers and the jobless alike.”

Mark Beatson, chief economist at the CIPD, said the labour market was currently difficult to understand: “The jobs enigma, of strong growth in private sector employment in the absence of sustained economic growth, has been one of the most mystifying economic features of 2012, and if 2012 proved an enigma, the labour market appears equally difficult to pin down for 2013.”

He added that the underemployment explanation was not adequate: “While there are undoubtedly significant numbers of people working fewer hours than they would like… the numbers have not increased significantly this year, making it a poor explanation on its own for the 2012 jobs enigma.”
