MY AGE DISCRIM. ARTICLE FEATURED IN AGING TODAY

I am pleased that the American Society on Aging has chosen to feature my article, An Epidemic of Discrimination, about the silent epidemic of age discrimination in the workplace, on its website and in the January/February issue of its magazine, Aging Today. Founded in 1954, the mission of the ASA is to enhance the knowledge and skills of those who work to improve the quality of life for older adults and their families.  The association, based in San Francisco, includes a diverse array of professionals, educators, administrators, policy makers, business people, researchers and students.  I argue in the article that rampant, unaddressed age discrimination against workers in their 40s and 50s – particularly during the Great Recession – has eroded their financial security during their retirement years.  This is one of the themes I explore in my new book,Betrayed: The Legalization of Age Discrimination in the Workplace.
