Of course, widespread age discrimination appears to have long been a likely hindrance to many gaining employment. Being ignorant to the reality of the apparently widespread and accepted practice of age discrimination as typically displayed by the employers of the United States would certainly be a mistake. As an example of the apparent acceptance of age discrimination, the U.S. Department of Labor's website doesn’t even list age discrimination as a topic under which one can contact that department.
I mean..., am I mistaken? Age discrimination is supposedly illegal, right? All this despite the recent and repeated disregard for anti-discrimination laws by the U.S. Court systems, legislators, and employers, it still is illegal, isn't it? Not that I personally would consider age to be a handicap, but maybe there aren't many of us around anymore that care to help those that are in need of such help. Because the anti-discrimination laws, in general, appear as nothing more than meaningless words on paper - all to the apparently disinterested eyes of our elected and government officials and court systems.
