Why are job applicants rejected because of their age?

Age affects the possibility of getting a job - but above all the risk of NOT getting a job. Several surveys show that employers are starting to opt out of applicants as early as the age of 40, despite the fact that the shortage of experienced and competent staff is currently greater than ever. Why does it look like this and how can you as an employer and jobseeker act to reduce the problem?

See associate professor in Economics Magnus Carlsson discuss the issue in a video from the Swedish Public Employment Service, linked below.
