Quaad op uitstap, of is het uitstoot?

Abstract
The Governor of the National Bank, Guy Quaden, has repeated that the Belgian employee leaves his job too early, at the age of 59,7 on the average. This should be discouraged because it raises the costs of pensions. The vocabulary used by him and other experts, i.e. "leave", "step out", "retire", ignores the fact that most employees who become prematurely unemployed, have been sacked, "reorganized", temporarily unemployed, a.o. The Governors underlying idea that working longer will create jobs, is a falacy. Most enterprises have lowered their workforce and continue to do so. Every 60-plus worker that remains active, decreases the number of vacancies for youngsters. As long as consumption and production stay low, managers will not hire new personnel.
