AGE DISCRIMINATION

I have face age discrimination for the past few years. It is not fair that you should be shut out of the job market just because you have reached a certain age. Something needs to be done about this. Since I can no longer find a well paying job, I am basically homeless, living with friends who are tired of me being in their home, but I can NOT afford a place of my own. This HAS GOT to stop.

A little lost

I worked at a major televison network in NYC for 16 years. The commute into midtown Manhattan from my apartment in NJ has gotten more and more difficult over the years as mass transit reliability gets worse and worse. The company laid me off 12/16/18 and I still have not found a job and my 8 weeks’ severance pay is almost gone. I have decided it is time to leave. I scoped out Knoxville TN in 2017 and went back afer the layoff, but without a…

I also believe in KARMA and what these people have done to me and others by not giving the opportunity to work to be a valuable asset to the company. This is important for the simple reason being people like myself need to live if not will be forced to be homeless. I…

After filling out lots of applications I finally got a job!

I went to the Interview as a housekeeper and got hired the job on the spot. I have been unemployed since December living back with my mom and kids.

Congratulations, but don’t stop there, elevate yourself by getting a trade and not only doing better, but feeling better.

Seriously frustrated

I became unemployed the last day of December. My company let 8 people go, the reason was lack of work. I found a great job in days. Before the week was over I had another job. The CFO who I reported to quit. A week later I was let go from the job. The company was insolvent and could not pay their bills. They were shut down. A few weeks later I found another job, not a good one, but it would pay the bills. It was a co being ran from his…
