After being hired six months ago the company replaced the manager that hired me. Since then he has replaced 90% of the previous emplyees. I have unfairly endured constant criticism. Since I have over 40 years of retail experience I am sure that I more than capable to meet and exceed the criteria of my job description. Everyonone that has been hired since the change is under 35 years of age. I am sure it will only be a matter of time until I am pushed out and will loose my insurance.

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.
