  •  It does make it difficult. In the 'old days' (1+ / 0-)

    people stayed on the job they had doing the same work and not getting the raises younger workers had.  But the older workers had seniority (longer vacation times, first choice for working hours, etc.)  So not getting the same raises wasn't an issue.

    Now, you are right - everyone is disposable & older people have to fight to get considered for some jobs.
    (I hate being told I'm overqualified for a job!  It's just a way to fob off older workers.)
