Half of Belgians aged 55 to 64 workFriday, 19 January 2018 18:53
Belgium's statistics are improving, but it still lags behind its neighbours where over-55 employment is concerned. "While 50% of the over-55’s work in Belgium, in Germany it’s 70% and in the Netherlands, 66%,” says Stijn Baert, labour market economist at the University of Ghent.
The overall employment rate in the working-age population (15-64 years) is 63% in Belgium. In the European Union, only Greece, Italy and Spain score lower.
