Gray Matters Coalition is a grass roots special interest group dedicated to employment reform, ending age discrimination in the work place, in the screening and interview process and injustices affecting Americans as they age.
Our Mission is to Bring Age Discrimination Issues to the forefront of national awareness and become a powerful political voice in shaping laws and policies in civil rights law that will end age discrimination in the work place and protect workers as they age. It Is Essential for the Survival of Workers Age 40 & Older to Have Age Discrimination protection reinstated as was provided by the Act of 1967 (ADEA) (EEOC) The Age Discrimination Act of 1975 protecting race, gender, religion, color, national origin ,age and disabilities in civil rights law .
How This Happened: This 2009 (Gross vs FBL) Supreme Court ruling was the first step in nullify the Act of 1967 (ADEA) (EEOC) protecting older workers rights in civil rights law. Justice Clarence Thomas invented a new standard in rewriting laws that set forth a law radically undermining older workers. When Justices Thomas, John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, and Samuel Alito dismantled this law, older workers were left unprotected and at the mercy of big business. This explains a lot about why job boards are free to post ads discriminating against the unemployed. Advertisements such as these would have been against the law just 4 years ago.
More than 4.6 million people age 45 and older have been looking for work for a year or longer. This age group makes up 47 percent of the long term unemployed and has the highest unemployment rate of any other groups. Without jobs, health insurance and unemployment benefits the future is bleak for those who dare to age in America.
Age Discrimination is a Bipartisan People Problem that crosses all boundaries; social, economic, religious, political, gender, race, national origin, seniors, labor, disabilities, people in all walks of life and professions.
The Silence Ends Now: Join the war against age discrimination injustices and help to reinstate the laws that it took two hundred years and millions of people fighting and dying to put into place. The Act of 1967 (ADEA) (EEOC) The Age Discrimination Act of 1975 protecting race, gender, religion, color, national origin ,age and disabilities in civil rights law was written and passed to protect everyone. Discrimination of any kinds must not be tolerated. Together All Things Are Possible.
