AS THE RECESSION LINGERS, AGE DISCRIMINATION RUNS RAMPANT IN THE WORKFORCE

Age discrimination is one of the most prevalent forms of discrimination in today's workforce. As the recession drags on, older workers are the most at-risk demographic for being laid off or fired. Companies across America are viciously and unlawfully forcing out older, more experienced workers and replacing them with younger, less experienced workers.

The AARP reported that from 2001 to 2009 the number of unemployed workers age 55 and older shockingly increased by 331%. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") stated that the number of age discrimination charges have jumped by 29% since 2007. The EEOC also reported that an astounding 60% of people age 45 - 74 have experienced or observed age discrimination in the workforce.

With these statistics, it's undeniable that age discrimination is the most rampant form of discrimination in today's workforce, and as the recession wreaks havoc on our economy, these statistics will likely increase.
