Times are tough for workers of all ages as everyone waits for the economy to bounce back. Huge job losses have affected everyone, but older workers are struggling to get back on their feet as they search for work in the digital age.
Older workers feel they have a disadvantage in this new job market, but they are very much needed at companies because of their years of experience and valuable job skills. Older workers may feel they don't have the same technology skills as other workers, but they can't be turned down for a position on this reason alone. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 protects older workers against this kind of discrimination.
