Let go just 1 month shy of my 60th birthday. Worked at ADP for 28 years. Very few employees were allowed to retire in peace. Some of my colleagues deliberately retired early in their late 50's to around 60 since they couldn't take the harassment, pressure, and exhortations to work many overtime hours, and wanted to retire on their own terms rather than waiting to be thrown out. It's a young man's/woman's game at ADP. Youth is healthier and is better able to take the pressure and abuse of this company. Also, they receive much lower salaries than the old timers.
Looking for cheaper and younger employees. Older employees are "sidelined" and literally forced to move out. If you're over 50 the application process is an uphill struggle.
Pressured and then let go at 60
Let go at 60. Need I say more.

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.
