Even though this small office staff is all middle-aged (the youngest is 40, I was the oldest at 62), being in the event business, too much attention is given to youth and beauty rather than professionalism. The owner, especially, at 55+ is much much too concerned with her appearance.
Fulton County GA (Fulton.ga.gov) seeks seniors for volunteer rpositions and will utilize experienced workers through programs like SCSEP. On rare occasions - when hired - older workers are offered P/T (less than 20 hrs/wk) and usually 2 to 3 days/ week employment options; no health or other benefits; minimum to near minimum wages.

Denotes a Certified Age Friendly Employer

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.
