These folks, owners of Slater's Diner in Raymond, WA, may hire a senior but will fire them as soon as possible, even though the senior is doing the job and doing it very well. They will make up an excuse, exaggerate, accuse, lie and fire that senior for no reason. They don't want their clientele to see a senor working there. Bad for business I guess.

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.
