Discrimination of Seniors

Discrimination of Seniors occurs on many personal levels for the elderly.
Many seniors would agree that peoples actions and beliefs are very discriminatory toward them. These beliefs are often held against seniors inability to preform physical events/actions, like playing a sport causally with their grandchildren or occasionally working out. They are also discriminated against when it comes to employment. Most people over the age of 50 face problems with being hired or receiving promotions due to their age. Companies also tend to layoff the older or most experienced workers rather than the younger.

  1. you are absolutely right. One thing I particularly don't like is how they are replaced by younger workers whose minimum wage is much lower (I don't know about the US but in Australia, the older you are the higher the minimum wage).

  5. I agree that it's terrible that if someone is able and willing to work that they should be denied just because of their age.
