McClatchy & The Miami Herald to older workers: Come on people, just die off!
In their latest article in Business Monday, the Miami Herald and McClatchy editorial boards totally forgot that age discrimination is both illegal and immoral. With phrases like:
Columnist James Cassel in a "Special to the Miami Herald" basically brushes aside any idea that older workers actually contribute to creating and maintaining value for the companies they work for.
Not once did the Miami Herald or McClatchy mention that older workers might want to remain because they are physically and psychologically active, engaged, creating value.
Along the way, they seem to have forgotten that most of their audience is NOT the younger workers they so idolize, but the older ones that they want to push out.
I urge you to write both, to the Miami Herald and to McClatchy to voice your disagreement with their position that older workers are just obstacles.

So, no, I don't have guards follow me in a store because I'm "Latino"

If the same test were given on age discrimination... how would you rate?
