I turned 55 and after 25 years was let go with no explanation. They said heading in different direction so hired a 30 yrs old so could pay less. Company was awfully run led by dishonest owner.
Everyone that reaches the 60 year and older mark are all let go for reasons that are not explained. In Rhode Island it is a right to fire state with no explanation.

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.
