Check out this Age Discrimination story:
When Ben Sims, 57, showed up earlier this year for a job interview at a company in Richardson, Tex., he noticed the hiring manager — several decades his junior — falter upon spotting him in the lobby.
“Her face actually dropped,” said Mr. Sims, who was dressed in a business suit befitting his 25-year career in human resources at I.B.M.
Later, in her office, after several perfunctory questions, the woman told Mr. Sims she did not believe the job would be “suitable” for him. And barely 10 minutes later, she stood to signal that the interview was over.
How many know this story? Literally, on the phone, assumptions are made about my age and I hear I should talk to "so and so company" for the workers are "all my age".
Even more disgusting so called experts write brazen discriminatory statements in their so called analysis of the situation.
To make matters worse, discrimination laws are such that it is almost impossible to sue these companies.
Considering we now have an entire demographic, a massive talent pool being laid to waste due to discrimination in this country, isn't it about time that all workers demand change?
If politicians and executives were confronted with such bias, maybe then this issue would get the attention it deserves.
