The Determinants of Hiring Older Workers: Evidence from Hong Kong.
Heywood, John S.; Ho, Lok-Sang; Wei, Xiangdong
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v52 n3 p444-59 Apr 1999

Firms were more likely to invest in training when workers were young. Delayed compensation was more acceptable to younger workers. (SK)
