Age Discrimination

The Supreme Court's decision, "in an opinion by Justice John Paul Stevens, did not leave employers defenseless. They will be able to defend themselves by proving that a challenged policy was based on "reasonable factors other than age.""

Yeah and let me tell you from experience what this is: The younger worker will always be found to be more qualified. Their degree is better; the two jobs they had are better than the 12 years for the older worker. The clips are stronger and hence they are better qualified for the job. I doubt there is any case where the oldest worker was hired for a competative job opening in government or the private sector. My three claims were dismissed in house for these reasons. Moreover it's doubtful the EEOC would have found them meritorious to even take. So I didn't pursue it.
