Abstract


Objective: to do a revision on the subject of the social and economic system; System in which youth and beauty are privileged and considered above all experience and knowledge. Materials and methods: a bibliographic revision of some authors that have addressed the subject of the work situation of an older adult was conducted. Results: todays societies discriminate against older adults, failing to recognize their experience, knowledge and wisdom that have been gathered throughout the years. The growth of the older adult population and that of the economically active makes it possible for the work force to grow older, which could affect the economic growth and the correct functioning of the work force; for this reason, older people are expected to leave their work for the younger populations. Conclusions: age has a high cost in the productive work force in Colombia, assumed by the older adults and ignored by the State.
