Publisher: Canadian Historical Association / Société historique du Canada
Series/Report no.: Vol 18 numéro 4;
Abstract: The origins of mandatory retirement at age 65 can be traced back to Bismarck in nineteenth entury Germany, whose scheme to insure workers against accident, sickness, and old age became a model for the industrial world. In that time, a person at the age of 65 was very close to the end of his/her days, and was not likely to be in good physical shape.
