After I had an interview on the phone and in person, the manager acted so impressed with my degrees and people experience. He all but said you got it !....I figured because I was 59 and a little slower than the other younger candidates he never even acknowledged I existed. Employers like this want to appear "fair" and equal, but then attitudes of hiring managers thinking they are selecting the next CEO, they are very narrow minded.

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.
