Ageism - A Diversity Issue, Right Up There with Gender, Race, Sexual Orientation

Yes, AARP, which represents aging Americans, documents that prejudice in hiring, disciplining, promoting, and terminating can kick off in one’s 30s.
Ageism is right up there with the challenge of ending bias against races, ethnic groups, women, the disabled, and those with alternate sexual orientations.
Businesses “caught” treating employees and contract workers over-35 unfairly will be sued, sales boycotted, the brand destroyed, and refusal of workers who left to “boomerang” back.
