Do these people just get layed off and cast aside so that younger people replace them? What is going on with our society. Just discard people over 50 who are professionals and have been working since their 20s and are perfected in performance of anything they do.

I am with you. The AARP needs to get involved with this across the country and so should our President. It is not right to lay off people just before retirement. I know it is hard to prove it, but this is the trend now since the economic downfall... to basically hire younger people and to pay them less money. Then when you interview or send your resume in with years of experience, this is how they can tell how old you are and not even have the courtesy to respond like a professional employer used to do with some type of a "regret letter". I bet some of the middle aged 50ish people could outdo any of the younger generation with "work ethic".

How can we support ourselves on part-time jobs much less our students who are trying to go to your Greenville, NC colleges? The colleges need to start hiring senior citizens full time to assist, not just students to fill positions in all capacities. If the mother or father does not have employment, college town statistics will drop because parents cannot affort to send their children to "state" colleges.

As long as a person is capable of working in this "melting pot" society, he/she should be allowed to do so with dignity. The age discrimination mentality should be abolished. There should be flourishing opportunities for senior citizens. We should not be forced to give our hard-earned skills away to youngsters with no clue of what our job qualifications are. Further, we should make MORE than what we made prior to leaving a job, having been forced from a job, or whatever the case might be. It's pitiful what some salaries are for senior citizens.
