Workers With Plenty to Give
When 62 year old Wodonga resident Stephen sold his business, he never expected he’d still be looking for a job six months later.
While several industries and businesses claim they are desperate for workers, Stephen’s experience indicates he may be missing out, due to his age.
In desperation, he contacted the Neil Mitchell Program to explain his dilemma.
“I’m very fit, very healthy, I’ve run hotels, motels and nightclubs for the past 40 years, so I’m very skilled up, but I can’t get a look in as soon as they know my age,” he said.
