Pensions major concern for young workers

09 July 2004
A major concern for young workers is the state of the pensions market, according to a new survey.

Amicus, the UK's second largest union asked young workers polled at this year's Glastonbury Festival for their top ten work-place issues.

Of the 1,300 people who responded, 27 per cent say they want to "work to live not live to work", 20 per cent want to take on global giants and 14 per cent cite pensions scandals as an issue of concern, the MoneyMarketing website reports.

Amicus festival campaign coordinator Anna Burton said: "People now see that policy campaigns can benefit their own personal agenda and everyday working life as well as the issues that affect the wider working world."
