Age discrimination?

This morning Imus was very positive about Sue. I like her. There was some question as to how much money she makes. But that was dismissed as not the real reason. “They want some blonde young girl.”

Us old job seekers know the ugly truth: Age DOES make a difference.

Too bad! We, as a society, better figure the old age problem. “We” have to align the Social Security Retirement Age and Life Expectancy Tables. To do that, folks will have to work later into life. If employers discriminate, this will be impossible.

So Sue Simmons is the poster girl for future age discrimination.
