“Most high-tech employers would likely deny that age discrimination is an issue at their company. But many IT workers over 50 beg to differ, saying they have experienced age bias or know someone who has”
Could be the same for me in education. I was reading a contract yesterday that described “early retirement” for folks with ten years experience/55+. Are they really going to hire an old man like me? The contract, I believe, described voluntary early retirement but still, it’s the thought that counts. Why are folks in their wise old years undesirable in the workplace? They are so undesirable that 60% of a year’s salary was offered as inducement. I do know that many schools have tight budgets and we old guys cost a lot more than the younger kids.
