Just a little post inviting everyone aware of unfair discrimination againt people over 45 but under retirement age of 65 to speak up!

Many forms of government unfair discrimination based on age are ILLEGAL in the United States, technically anyway. State funded lenders, rental agencies, government sponsored adoption agencies and (in many states) even private employers technically cannot discriminate unfairly based on age by law.

For example, a state agency cannot deny employment to an otherwise qualified person based on age alone. But how many people in the over 45 category are not finding much support for contesting against this form of discrimination in Nebraska?

It is not just in Nebraska. It is nationwide. The bad economy has made it even worse. People over 45 who are laid off from jobs have a much harder time getting new jobs than do younger co-workers with the same education and skills.

There are laws prohibiting unfair discrimination. More people over age 45 should start demanding enforcement of anti-age discrimination laws!

Trouble with "start demanding enforcement of anti-age discrimination laws" is that it is almost impossible to prove. One of the lines that employers use now is "you are over qualified for this job" when workers are forced to look for jobs lower down the skill/education/pay scale.
