Et aldrende arbejdsmarked - er Danmark i problemer? Speciale i sundhedsfremme og sundhedstrategier

Studenteropgave: Speciale


Denmark is facing a change in the community as the country will soon turn into an aging communi-ty, partly because of the demographic development, which means that the labor market will consist of 50-year-old instead of 20-year-old people. This provide some challenges for the Danish labor market, because the elderly tends to set other demands and expectations. Therefore, Denmark will now face a new generation of elderly, a new community change and a new economy.
This has opened the discourse of a higher pension age, since Denmark now must adapt to these changes. The constant change in the Danish community will set some demands for a constant devel-opment and education of the elderly, who according to some people will have a tough time to keep up with the constant change. As many are of the opinion that most of the elderly cannot keep up with the high pension age without getting worn down and through some discourse is articulated to be in settlement instead of development. This has also had some influence on how the employers now look upon the elderly, which in general has a negative assumption and they do not see a long future for the elderly on the labor market.
Through my empiri evidence, they articulate that the answer to the debate is education and a healthy work environment thus elderly can get a healthy aging through their working life, but unfortunately there is no consensus about what healthy ageing contains.
This master sets to bring light to the discussion on the different articulations on the labor market, and try to understand what is accepted as the truth about elderly on the labor market.
