on mandatory retirement age for judges
http://newsandinsight.thomsonreuters...ears_Assembly/

Quote:
ALBANY, N.Y. (Reuters) - The New York State Assembly on Thursday approved an amendment to the state constitution that would allow state judges to stay on the bench until they turn 80.

Currently, the mandatory retirement age of state Supreme Court Justices is 70. After that, they can be certified every two years to remain on the bench until age 76.

Court of Appeals judges also have a mandatory retirement age of 70, but cannot be certified to serve beyond that.

....
The amendment passed 117-25 on Thursday. Assemblyman Michael Montesano of Nassau County, who opposed it, said during the vote that the proposal was discriminatory because it does not require Court of Appeals judges to be certified to continue serving. The certification process includes a physical and psychological exam.

Eighteen states, including California and Delaware, do not have a mandatory retirement age for judges. The states that do place it between 70 and 75, except Vermont, which requires judges to retire at 90.

Could someone older remind me why women's retirement ages have been set lower for men if there is a difference. I've never seen it the other way.
So the woman can have dinner ready when the old man gets home.

Once a woman reaches 62 it is hard for the woman to work AND get dinner ready in time.

Sweden
http://www.neurope.eu/article/raisin...sh-pension-age

Quote:
Pensions in Sweden is currently one of the country’s most hotly debated issues, as the centre-right Alliance for Sweden coalition government attempts to implement sweeping reforms

The raising of the retirement age being one of the most controversial policies, in a proposal is to hand people the right to work until they are 69, rather than the current cap of 67.

....
The Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has even suggested, much to the centre-left’s dismay, that people should be allowed to work out up to 75, arguing to reduce welfare costs to be more competitive with the emerging economies.

I find it amusing that many of these "retirement ages" are mandatory (or maximum) retirement ages, as opposed to normal retirement age.

With respect to certain professions (say, airline pilot), I can understand having mandatory retirement ages, but I don't see why one muse disallow people from working above certain ages in general. That's just odd.

The politics and cronyism of forcing retirement without standards is your issue.
With no rule, you end up forced to keep the 100 year old parent of the boss on the payroll.

But there are very few mandatory retirement ages in the U.S., and you don't see this happening too often.


I mean, if that's what would happen in Sweden, fine. I don't know much about Sweden.

or, rather, non-change

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...92T0C420130330

Quote:
A plan to reform France's state pension system will leave in place the official retirement age of 62, French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told a French newspaper.

"We won't touch the official retirement age," Ayrault said in an interview with Journal de Dimanche. "The main theme of our decisions is fairness."

France is under pressure to fix a short-term pension deficit which Ayrault said would swell to 20 billion euros ($25.68 billion) by 2020 if unaddressed.

GHANA

http://www.ghanabusinessnews.com/201...e-oti-boateng/

Quote:
Daasebre Dr. Oti Boateng, Omanhene of New Juaben, has advocated the extension of the retirement age of 60 to 65 years so that experts can work for a longer period.

He explained that this would enable experienced professionals to impart their experiences and knowledge to young workers to ensure smooth continuity and national development.

Dasebre Oti Boateng made the call at a reception, organized to mark his 75th birthday celebration at his palace in Koforidua.

He said: “Ghana continue to lose more expertise because the compulsory retirement age of 60 is not allowing workers to stay longer on the job market”.

That's because US law specifically PROTECTS workers over 40 against age discrimination. (though it's easier to fire people in general here.)

I would imagine in the quasi-planned economies a big part of the mandatory retirement age is ensuring there are jobs available for young people. Historically speaking, having lots of young unemployed people tends to be a recipe for more undrest than lots of unemployed old people, who are too pooped to riot.

http://legalnewsline.com/news/240684...age-next-month

Quote:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (Legal Newsline) — The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case challenging the state’s mandatory retirement age for judges.

According to a one-page order filed in Tilson v. Corbett et al. March 28, the court will review and decide whether Pennsylvania’s mandatory retirement age is discriminatory and violates the state constitution.

Under the Pennsylvania Constitution, judges must retire at the end of the year in which they reach age 70. They may continue working as senior judges. However, as senior judges, they do not receive the same salary or benefits.
