Age discrimination against worker's over 50 has been rapidly spreading. It is time the government stepped in and required employers to hire a certain percentage of worker's over 50, just as they have for other affirmative action groups. Older workers are being forced out of employment. They are too young to retire and do not have the means to sustain themselves for 10-20 years until they are old enough. Telling older workers how to "appear younger" in their job hunt is ridiculous and is not the answer. These are people who have a wealth of experience, have contributed to society, and don't deserve to be marginalized and discarded. Employers need to be held accountable for discriminatory hiring and firing practices that surfaced as of late. Individuals should not have to file charges, employers should be obligated to show they are in compliance with fair hiring. Everyone is going to age. You shouldn't be penalized for it.
