AGE ACTION IRELAND is urging TDs and Senators to push forward with legislation that would abolish mandatory retirement in Ireland.

The organisation has said the current situation – where many companies require employees to retire on reaching a certain age – has led to more 65-year-olds being on the dole than any other age group.

So, we want to know: Should mandatory retirement be abolished?

Poll Results:

Yes (7175)
No (2326)
I'm not sure (641)
