  •  No problem, Now ask him if he's willing (4+ / 0-)

    to have a 69 year old on his payroll......
    Where are people over 65 going to go to work ??

    Hell, if your 50 these days you can't even get an interview.
    Where the hell do these people think the jobs will come from ???

      They will continue to discard employees in their fifties before they get too expensive to support and replace them with under paid younger workers.  They don't care that there is no work for the 65-70 group; they don't care today about the 50-65 year old workers they have put in the streets with no intention of ever hiring from that pool again.

      The economic collapse created an astonishing opportunity for American businesses to get rid of the old growth and they took to it with a vengeance.  None of these CEOs cares that there will effectively be no employment for this group in Corporate America - they call it right to work...

      You give these guys way too much credit.  This isn't a bug, it's a feature.

      what happens when CEOs and board members are forced to retire at 60. Without their golden parachutes.

      Really, these are some of the same people who claim that they don't discriminate in hiring because of age ... but somehow their hirees are never over 50.

      (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)
