I thought 'eski' wasn't used for people, only 'yaşlı'.

it seems we can use it in some contexts : )

here it doesn't mean that they are aged, but they have been there for a long time OR they don't work there anymore

Thank you - that makes sense. I've been reading many of your replies and appreciate them a lot. You're very good at explaining these grammar points.

"eski" is the opposite of "new"

"yaşlı" is the opposite of "young"

"Eski personel." Translation: The old staff. "Yasli personel." Sounds much nicer. You do not understand (Miss) - Selcen_Ozturk. In London older people are working on to pay off mortgages after reaching retirement age & may be old but not worked at their new employers very long. Turkey has a young population. Over 45% is under 15 years old. Think about the future consequences of this? Please correct or alter my office of population census for Turkey.

45 percent are under 15!! That may be too good for a country!
