Long Term Unemployment Crisis Looms for Older Workers.

As the end of the UK furlough scheme approaches in October 2020, whatever makes you stand out from the crowd, be it you’re a union or safety rep, your political or social media activity, you’re ‘too old’, ‘too unwell’, disabled, wrong skin colour, or simply that you’re not regarded as “management material” – will be furtively used against you behind the scenes in the biggest, most widespread campaign of employer bullying, harassment and gaslighting the country’s ever seen. The climate of fear we’re all living in will only serve to exacerbate this. If you need help and ideas to confront this and fight back in a measured way, search for the terms ‘bullying / gaslighting’ on my blog.
