Public sector biased against older workers

TeninoSeptember 16, 2013 

In the last several years it is fairly evident in the public sector that older workers are discriminated against which is a violation of federal statutes. We see many eye candy people hired for public sector jobs over those age 40 and older, or possible conformity potential trumps proven performance and experience.

As far as experience goes, the older candidate often has more of the necessary experience than the selected candidate has been alive. It is little wonder that we see a world where America is no longer the leader in many areas. Support against age discrimination may not be as popular as support against sex discrimination, but both protections are based on the same moral standards established nearly 50 years ago.
