Older employees "too expensive"
Published on:Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - 12:21
A major Dutch IT company has presented plans to cut the salary of its older employees by up to 10%. Capgemini is going to ask 7% of its workforce - that's 400 people - to accept a voluntary pay cut. But it's not entirely voluntary - employees who don't agree are at a greater risk of losing their job. The measure will affect older workers in particular because they're relatively more expensive.
