    Age discrimination

    Has anyone ever experienced some "age discrimination" at work? I am now on the other side of 50 and have had a few things turn up that have been disturbing.

    Crap for got to tell you its againest the law for people to fire poeple for thier age ok there is some back up you can do if someone helps to back you on this

    1. you and the helper need a note book mark down everything and who talks to you and saying this and you and the partner need to jive on this have the same store .

    2.mark down dates what was said and who did this who  did that and who slanders you about age

    3. its called evidence verbal abuse and verbal battery and actions are hard to prove I know been there with the family we won a law suit long running on that and if the certain person slips up and saying things that we have marked down hisazz is grass.

    4. reason I tell for it to jive is you need your partner in this with you is its a witness and back up helps alot and you need to find out about what to do about this its againest the law what they are doing and if they can you ,and there you and partner got more back up with other people may keep quiet they want no part of it scared out of thier pants also mark down even some strange things at work that is happening now and I wish you well.

    I'm afraid I'm guilty of "age discrimination"....I RARELY hire folks under 30 years old.  The region's schools have been bad for many years and we're finding that the younger folks can't write a sentence and often don't meet the professional standards we expect.  I'm not talking wearing business suits and pantyhose or bowing-n-scraping, I'm talking showing up for work or calling if they aren't willing/able to arrive on time (or at all).  Wish you were here!
