I disagree with it too, but it's just a comment, who the hell cares? It's not AGE DISCRIMINATION! He's not refusing to hire anyone because of age, he just screwed up in thinking younger people are better candidates. SO WHAT?!?!?
All these posts about discrimination, losing credibility etc. What a lot of horse........
"I CANNOT believe in this day and age someone would actually practice AGE DISCRIMINATION so openly and flagrantly!!!"
He's NOT "practicing age discrimination", get over yourself. Did he not hire you because you were too old? No, so have a seat.
You want an apology, for a comment in an article, on a private website?
You are what's wrong with modern society, what a crotchety, bitter old dog!
"Jack Wallen is an age discriminate moron "
Learn what discrimination means before you spew you BS,
Seriously, the first thing you need in ANY role is a thick skin. Clearly, people are more focused on a single comment in a list of relevant observations than having a thick skin.
I could see it from kids if the comment was that you had to be older to be experienced and valued for such, which isn't too off base anyway, but this is just ridiculous. No wonder you live in such a PC society now where any comment results in a lawsuit from an easily offended and very think skinned loser.
Get a grip people, it's just a 'kin article. It's not a new law being passed, nobody is suggesting changing the Constitution, nobody has lost an eye, it was words and a personal opinion/comment, WHO CARES WHAT'S SAID? Disagree, offer your rebuttals but to take offense and start flaming the OP is just pathetic.
