Age-friendly my rear end! I spoke with the hirer for this company and she sounded so gung-ho to hire me. When I finally went in and filled out an application, I was told that the person that did the hiring was on vacation but she would get back to me the following week when she got back. All fine and good, right? I wasn't in that big of a hurry because I was just looking for part-time, 20 hours or less a week. It took her two weeks to get back to me with an email telling me that my experience wasn't what they were looking for. Here again, experience my rear end! I have been a C.N.A. since August of 1978 and have been working in the field off and on since then. That's what 40 years. Most of my experience is working in the hospitals as a C.N.A. I am 64 years old right now and just need a little to supplement what I have coming in. Like I said, "age-friendly my rear end"! To whom, their friends?
I started working for senior helpers. About 62 & would still would be working with them if it wasn’t for a recent illness and needing benefits. Allowed me time for appointments and hospital stays and surgery. A great place for Seniors to work and assist other Senior that need assistance with daily activities

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.
