Focuses on the labour market for older workers. Japan has one of the highest rates of participation for workers over the age of 60 and explains why this is so. This explanation brings in a discussion of the mandatory retirement system in Japan and the pension system, both public and private. The labour market for middle-aged workers is also briefly touched on.
