The debate about mandatory retirement is explored in this
thought-provoking new work

Mandatory retirement has become a major social and political issue in Canada. In this book expert authors explore the key themes that lie at the heart of the debate on this subject. It offers new information and new insights regarding the complex dynamics underlying this controversial policy.
Jonathan Kesselman shows the deficiencies in economic analyses that have been used to support mandatory retirement. Allan Irving explains how ageist beliefs lead to the devaluation of the elderly, lending support to this discriminatory policy. Jean McKenzie Leiper tells her personal account of being forced to retire after only ten years in the work force, and how she fought this policy in the courts.
Time's Up! appears at a watershed moment in the debate about this subject in Canada, and features contributions from eminent writers in economics, business, politics, and sociology.
