Ageism Is Alive and Well! Well, it is not really well!
http://wftc.membercenter.worldnow.com/story/21559231/delta-captain-retires Imagine if all congressional leaders were forced to retire at 65? The sad reality is as we continue to hear that the IT giants average is under 35, we are in a big heap of trouble. It is strange isn't it? What is strange you ask? Well, the majority of Americans are over 35 years of age, yet, we have little say in age discrimination. 70 million women are over 40. Isn't it in the best interest of all to keep us working? Oddly there are more woman over the age of 80, than there are in sub-group 60-65. less This is only for women, for men it is 62 million over the age of 40. Isn't it in the best interest of the economy, social security, retirement, insurance, the taxpayer to keep us working, and use our experience to guide the young hipsters under the age of 35. Well, one way to resolve this issue is for half of the nation to refuse to financially sponsor any corporation, organization, or enterprise that refuse to understand the value in the aforementioned concept. THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS PEOPLE!
