Why don't they get the young ones off their behinds. My husband IS 70 and can't see us retiring any time soon!

The days of retiring at 65 may nearly be over as there is a radical new push to keep you working. A report released by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on Tuesday said as global population ages, governments need to increase retirement ages.

The report also suggested Australia should increase private superannuation contributions.

This would mean older people staying in the workforce for longer but what jobs can they do?

The website,, claims to link mature age people looking for work to age-friendly employers. You can submit job applications online, make a resume and manage an online profile. It offers mature Australians a number of potential jobs for which they can apply, including butchers, chefs, secretaries and mechanics.
