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.
