Value City Furniture purchased my previous employer and kept the majority of the staff. It was shortly after the change of ownership that it became very obvious Value City preferred a younger staff. Two of the managers at my location were either fired or moved to a lesser location. These two managers had over 30years of retail furniture experience between them.

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.
