In de tweedelige Radar Extra-documentaire 'Kans op werk: 3 procent' onderzoekt Antoinette Hertsenberg de werkloosheid onder vijftigplussers. Ondanks honderden sollicitaties blijven ze werkloos. Op 29 mei zie je deel 2 van deze serie. Het marktaandeel vacatures voor vijftigplussers is maar drie procent. Hier valt niet tegen op te solliciteren. In Finland hebben ze hetzelfde probleem en daar doen ze nu een experiment met een basisinkomen.
Onderteken de petitie: Basisinkomen 55-plussers
Een vast bedrag krijgen per maand, zonder plichten en regels en wat je bijverdient mag je houden. Zou zo?n experiment met een basisinkomen een oplossing kunnen zijn voor de problemen van de 55-plusser op zoek naar werk?
Antoinette Hertsenberg praat onder andere met ondernemer Annemarie van Gaal, historicus Rutger Bregman, basisinkomen-deskundige Guy Standing en hoogleraar arbeidsmarkt Ton Wilthagen, over de knelpunten in ons stelsel en nieuwe oplossingen.
