Q: Ageism or necessaryism?
Age discrimination in hiring is even harder to prove, which accounts for the high number of older workers who are long-term unemployed.
Ageism (age discrimination) violates every dimension of wellness. Without wellness, health is impossible, and chronic disease is inevitable. The longer healthcare providers, payors, and policy makers continue to ignore this sector, the more pervasive, and potentially irreparable the societal harm will become.
Discrimination against older workers is no different than a society shooting itself in the foot.
