Independent contractor for 30 days. 2weeks in, someone on my team found out that I was 50+ after I was asked to confirm it since I did not look my age; the 'you don't look my age' comment has always confused me. The team lead that I reported to was in his 40s, but he began to nitpick and holding me accountable for things that I was either not aware of, or for following his incorrect directive. After stating it was his directive, he would then deny stating it. He targeted me for the remainder of my 2weeks on the contract, and ended my contract for reasons that were never proven.
After 20 years with Wells Fargo, I was let go for no real reason. I feel that it was partly because of my age and partly because they could hire newer, inexperienced younger people and pay them less.

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.
