I got hired at the age of 56 and after 3 1/2 yrs I gave my notice because I wanted to return to part time work. I asked if I could go back to part time and they immediately said no. My supervisor tried to keep me but they said no. Prior to my leaving the company I noticed that all new hires are under the age of 40.

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.
