My manager became concerned with my age of 61 years. Another manager even asked me how come my salary is so high. I told him that is a question that should have been asked of my recruiter 11 years ago. A few months later I was replaced by two teenage interns related to other employees. Target Health not only showed age discrimination but the unfair business practice of hiring relatives. They may also be racist because several Spanish speaking employees were also dismissed. Their workforce only includes or hires people from India and Korea. They also allow their employees to smoke in the bathrooms. That is a federal offense also. The worse part about all of these offenses is the two owners are in their mid 70s and decide not to do anything about it.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
