You cannot prove age discrimination.  It is too difficult to prove.

I understand.  

If I didn’t need to earn money, I wouldn’t work for it.   

 

Enjoy!

I have been reading some of the sadest post regarding age discrimination over the last couple of weeks. The one thing I find the sadest is people giving up. Maybe I just cannot relate but my view of discrimination is very different. I could get a trifecta looking for a job, black, female and senior but there is a fire still in me that I dare anyone to discriminate against me for any of the above stated. I don't feel powerless. I will come after any organization that discriminates against me period. All this talking is good but kick some butt.

@BettyB374802 , a tip.

 

If you enter an @ you will get a list of possible recipients.  Without that, there is no way anyone can guess who you are referring to.  There are hunderds of possibilities and the forum doesn't indicate who you were replying to. You need to do that.

Hi Sherry,

 

I'd say exactly what vm10947576 said "I want to enjoy what I am doing, I love to work, and hope to do it until I drop."  or, you can go the sarcastic way and say "I hope to be upright" or "until I kick the bucket". It depends if the interviewer is really considering you or they are just interviewing so they can claim they don't discriminate age. This is typical of government institutions (the education ones for sure) or business that have government contracts.

What do you say to the person who is interviewing you and they ask "how long do you plan to work"?

I gave up looking for a part-time job; even though I know I am highly capable of doing the job!   I just got tired of age discrimination and looking at it in the "face".

I do an office volunteer job at a non-profit and they all love me and I also drive a tram in a beautiful garden and give history tours of the garden.  I really enjoy being outside with nature!
