Other than logging more miles on Air Force One than any other president, he’s done nothing outstanding. Oh how he’ll miss that jet and helicopter. Wish we could say it’s difficult to see your presidency come to an end, Barrack, but we can’t….we just cant…..

Comment on New Blog on Age Discrimination in Employment by Paul Wood http://abusergoestowork.com/new-blog-on-age-discrimination-in-employment/#comment-47520 Tue, 05 Jan 2016 22:11:12 +0000 http://abusergoestowork.com/?p=11690#comment-47520 Age discrimination will take anyone’s wind out of their sails and as it continues there must be an avenue to make most of the Human Resource specialist and hiring manager’s more accountable to the “Thank You but No Thanks”. I simply made a mistake when I made the decision to retire after my wife received a buy out and she took the opportunity to retire herself. For her, it has been great but I sure do wish that I could have had the crystal ball to look ahead. For starters, I retired at 67 years young and at that age graduated Summa Caude Laude with a MBA. However, my wife and I wanted to take some time and travel as we both deserved it. I have since turn two years older and have decided that I made a mistake with my decision to retire. So I fired up the resume and refined it with many additions, and corrections. In the past six months, I have sent out over 300 resumes, applications, and have been getting phone interviews with impressive feedbacks. I have also had some face to face interviews but with no job offers. Somewhere along the interview process companies are not providing any job offers even temporary jobs. First off, I am one year shy of 70 but do not look it. I approach each interview with preparation as described by all of the interview sites. I have multiple Master’s Degrees. I even Google myself and there is no lying about your age when that site had my current age and it is all based on public records.
Here, is what I would like to propose. All of the major defense companies have to complete a diversity program with certain percentages for small minority owned companies, veterans owned companies and a diversity program based on race. My proposal would be that for every diversified program there must be at least 5% of employees hired who are over 65. Every defense company must have this percentage met or face penalties for not obtaining that amount.
Any comments regarding this and age discrimination in the hiring place.

Comment on NPR’s Diversity Problem: Why So Few Women Sources? by C. Thomas Boone http://abusergoestowork.com/nprs-diversity-problem-why-so-few-women-sources/#comment-47244 Fri, 18 Dec 2015 12:17:25 +0000 http://abusergoestowork.com/?p=12082#comment-47244 This ought to startle some (in fact I perceive the majority) who believe that we have achieved both gender and racial equality in the U.S. Silicon Valley and NPR for most conjure synergistic images of hitherto unparalled historic progress. But we in fact have not even achieved the most fundamental first-step towards bona fide human rights for all (not even all in just these industries in just the U.S.). We have miles and miles to go before we sleep if we are to get there before darkness.
