Comment on ‘Transgender’ Now Accorded More Protection than ‘Age’ by S.P. http://abusergoestowork.com/transgender-now-accorded-more-protection-than-age/#comment-49480 Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:05:32 +0000 http://abusergoestowork.com/?p=12251#comment-49480 This is a very real issue, NO ONE is taking this up as an issue that needs addressed. We’re not old enough to retire, yet are penalized for using our IRA before age 59 1/2. What are we supposed to do if that’s the ONLY income we have? I want to work but employers are favoring younger, cheaper workers. All of us that want to work deserve an equal chance at jobs, experienced employees are good hard workers but no one seems to see that. It’s so frustrating.
