Age discrimination crosses all boundaries – gender, race, cultural, political, and economic.
It undermines our fundamental civil rights, moral -core values, and the financial security of Americans as they age.
This is a public forum where ageism issues are brought into the spot light to be seen globally by world leaders, Americans, the media, & public officials? Where is the humanity for older workers?
Many workers associate their identity and self worth with their jobs. Often after long term unemployment workers become humiliated, demoralized, demobilized and in a state of hopelessness. No longer a threat to the greedy executives that kicked them to the curb; many will become homeless or commit suicide.
Is this the legacy we want to leave our children, grand children and ourselves???
Ending age discrimination in the work place has to be the one issue that “everyone with a conscious will agree on.”
We can no longer sit back like lambs to the slaughter; no matter where you are, what group, organization, coalition, association, political or religious preference; we all know this is wrong.
Thank you for having the courage and back bone to stand up and tell your stories.
You may have saved a life or motivated another American worker to have the strength and determination to fight back, stand together and vote to change what corporate America is allowed to do to our workers as they age.
