Age bias is not an issue at the lowest level of employment if you are willing to stay as a P/T employee, with no benefits. This company, like many other large "Boy's Club," enterprises, employs favortism, ageism, racism, sexism, etc. If you are older (specifically female), you don't stand a chance of F/T employment, or a better position in the company, regardless of work ethic, excellent health status, prior experience, qualifications (i.e. degrees; multiple or singular), personality, etc.

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.
