It's all age discrimination, that's all. The laws are the laws, but human resources don't give a damn.

I run a farm and hire farm hands. I pay minimum wage because it is all I can afford. As I have found, you have better chances of landing a job when you have a job currently. If you burn bridges and do not tell the new job you need to give at least two weeks notice, what happens if you lose that job and need my reference?
I also have had people turn down the position because they want double what I pay - people that have been out of work for months, or even years.
Years ago my husband and I were laid off. We went from 6 figures to 0 in a matter of two weeks. I did construction cleaning for minimum wage, washed dishes, even picked up cans off the road just so I could keep on the lights and pay the insurance - and I have a masters degree but that piece of paper was not paying the bills.
A little piece of pie is better than no pie at all and so many people forget that.
Several people that have come to work for me were also applying at higher paying jobs. Usually within a month or two they landed another job, but they always showed class and told the new employer they had to give the two weeks notice. If they needed a reference, I always give glowing references. One man still comes one Saturday a month because he decided he really liked the farm and does some of the more technical jobs (he was an aircraft facilities manager by trade) like the electric gate, repairs, etc - and shows he appreciated the great reference I gave him to get an almost 6 figure job!!
