Age discrimination

I'm 56 years old, years of work experience and a college degree, it doesn't seem to matter, I get paid the lowest amount of money.

I too am very frustrated. I am a 56 year old man, very youthful and active. I can't even get an interview with 24 years experience in the field I keep applying for. The companies like Ball aerospace, Lockheed Martin, and all the rest of the liars that claim no discrimination keep asking what year I graduated high school. If I have a Bachelor degree, what the hell do you care when I graduated high school except, it is a work around to asking my age. I sent out 40 resumes and have had 0 interviews. I only had 3 jobs in 25 years. I am dedicated and only lost my job due to the position being removed from the company. This is bull shit, you should never be punished for having experience.

For sure this happens a lot , I went to Automate time School and I known dealershipa don't hire older people because they don't want to waist money on them for training . Plus my instructor was a hiring manager and he said I would not probably be hired

CorpoRATe America can kiss my 53 year old butt. Guess it's ok though that 7 out 10 people between 17 and 24 don't qualify for military service due to obesity, drug use and criminal activity. What a society

It's a busines you sign up for on agency and they sell your information. Most are duplicates and old and fake . My best has been with Craigslist and indeed.

No matter the experience if you are older but still viable and want to work, you will be denied!
