AGE DISCRIMINATION, BY ABRAHAM ESTRADA
Age discrimination occurs when a decision is made depending on a person's age
I personally think age discrimination should not be allowed because of many reasons.
People should have equal rights, it doesnt matter if they are young or old.
Above age can be as useful as younger people. Age discrimination can be really unfair to people who really want to do something but can't, just because of their age.
What if your parents are in a very serious economical issue but can't get jobs because they are "too old"?
It can be really unfair, there are still some organizations that discriminate people by their age
If age discrimination wouldn't exist, some organizations wouldn't be missing on very talented people that could be useful for them, but they instead ignore them. They are harming themselves and the people that applied for the job.
?So then the headhunter said something that took my breath away,? said my caller, Philip. ?He told me that his client looked at my resume and said it looked great, but then he found my LinkedIn profile and decided I?m a little long in the tooth for the job.? I was silent. That took my breath away, too. ?Long in the tooth?? I asked. ?As in old?? ?Exactly,? said Philip.
Example of age discrimination:
-Liz Ryan (Victim of Age Discrimination)
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act has been signed in 1967, but people still keep discriminating, if you have been discriminated by your age, please REPORT IT!
Please don't let other people discriminate you by your age. Age is just a number. STOP AGE DISCRIMINATION
