Discrimination by employers Is reality, and not just for Blacks. I work in the printing trade

and previous to turning 52  I was able to get seasonal work for some 23 years.

when my age went up my earnings went down, and my position went down.

It's a crying Sin how experienced older workers are treated in industry.

I applied at one business in the silicon valley, where, during the interview I found out

that the actual job was exactely what I had been doing across the Bay at another business,

I am 100% certain that I was not hired on there because everybody else there was in their 20's

and I was pushing 50 years old.

Age, sex, racial , religious and other types of discrimination exist in employment.

So disturbing but sadly not surprising. This story is consistent with a growing body of research that documents employer discrimination against applicants with "ethnic sounding" names..
