The Unites States Department of Labor: Stop Legalized Age Discrimination


    After 23 years of unwaivering loyalty to Con Agra Foods, my mother was terminated from her position with only 18 months left until her retirement.  There was a way for her to be promoted into an empty position in order for her to keep her job and train those whom would need to learn her job. She and 14 other employees, whom were all over the age of 50 had their positions,  conveniently "eliminated".

   This is NOT just a coincidence. She is 63 years old and has little to no chance to find another job. This company has left her and and 14 other employees without a job and with little hope of finding employment. This practice MUST be stopped.  Please, help us stop companies, like Con Agra Foods, from destroying employees and their families financially in order to save a few dollars for themselves.

Stop Legalized Age Discrimination

After dedicating 23 years of her life through unwaivering loyalty to Con Agra Foods, my mother was terminated from her position with only 18 months left until her retirement. There was a way for her to be promoted into an empty position in order for her to keep her job and train those whom would need to learn her job. She and 14 other employees, whom were all over the age of 50, had their positions "eliminated".
This is NOT just a coincidence. She is 63 years old and has little to no chance to find another job.

Please, help us stop companies, like Con Agra Foods, from destroying employees and their families financially in order to save a few dollars for themselves.
Please, show the American people that our government does not condone such shameful treatment of hardworkng seniors who are close to their retirement.
I have made it my MISSION to expose these atrocities for what they are and to stop greedy companies from ruining senior employees retirement and denying them what they are due for so many long hard years of loyalty.Please help us make a change for so many who have worked so hard for so long only to be treated which such disrespect. I will do whatever is neccessary to expose this issue and gain your support. Thank you for your time and attention.

Respectfully,
Shelley M. Mantooth
