Netherlands — 43% of students believe that raising the retirement age adds nothing to the economy

23 April 2010

A survey carried out by temporary employment agency Asa Student (part of USG People), the specialist temporary employment agency for Bachelor and Master students, reveals that 43% of students do not believe that raising the retirement age to 67 years will contribute to an improved economy.

31% of students, however, accept the measure and think that it would be good for the economy. 26% of students believe that raising the retirement age to 67 years is neither here nor there. The research was carried out among 320 students in The Netherlands just before the upcoming General Elections.


80% of students believe that a distinction must be made between people with physically demanding jobs, who should be able to retire earlier, and those who carry out sedentary work.
