Age discrimination is no joke, yet I see comedians using old ideas about seniors as much as comedians used ideas about women decades ago. It's open season on seniors (since it's perceived that we're too deteriorated to fight back) on television (among others, Jay Leno has featured comedians using seniors as verbal punching bags w/the audience laughing along) & internet jokes . . . & if you point out the prejudice that parallels to women, blacks, religious & ethnic groups, it's sneered that you don't have a sense of humor. Employers dump experienced staff because it's "cheaper" to hire a new employee despite the break in customer service. ALL persons suffer w/that policy which inherently discriminated against working "seniors" (anyone 40+ years old). & it often doesn't matter if you are older than a "boss" since it is always possible that you have better business sense than someone older OR younger than yourself . . .
