AGEISM - The age we live in

As a 'victim', I have an interest in ageism. Try getting ad agency employment after 40, much less 50, and you'll see what I mean.

Not much I feel can, or will be done about save empty rhetoric, jobs for more civserfs, money for lawyers and a few handouts for those who play the system, but I do intend to stay abreast of it all.

Guardian - Age discrimination laws could backfire on us if they end up keeping young people out of work - Well, yes, I suppose. But one does wonder how the sprightly author would feel if his employer felt (and wasn't stupid enough to tell him) that they needed a 'younger perspective'.

Frankly, even just pondering in hope the notion that this government has considered anything smacks of losing the plot.
