Saw to many older employees dismissed because of age
They are the worse place to work, older employee are treated like crap. They slowly give you less and less hours as they hire someone younger to take your place who ended up quitting a month after I left.
I was hired for seasonal but they kept several people that were in the younger age group after Christmas. I had many years of experience and I was let go. I noticed at the end that he had to "find" work for me to do and I could sense he was making me feel unimportant as to lay the ground work for letting me go. I had several years of cashier experience and they let a younger person stay.

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.
