Never has been an age-friendly environment anyway, but particularly unwelcoming to employees who reach the age of 50 and show a little gray hair...that's who gets targeted for layoffs and bypassed for rare promotional opportunities despite results, and comments are directed towards that anywhere else would be called derogatory. Company unable to see past age bias for hiring, would rather not hire older workers, and prefers to not have employees who are over 30 and plan to stay longer than a couple of years and become eligible for benefits.
Seems they get rid of seniors

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.
