The company is facing a down year and their response to this was to begin laying off people of tenure who are 50 years of age and more. In the last couple of years there seems to be an unwritten policy of helping senior employees out the door or encouraging them to take early retirement
They have terminated a dozen senior (over 50), experienced long- term employees in the past year, yet kept inexperienced young contractors.

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.
