As the Sister of a brother who is diligently looking for employment with the understand that employee are not hireing, he have come agains something that I fee is descrimanating against him because of his age.  

I am sure that he is not the only one who have this problem, other as well.  I say this because of our country is going into what it has named Baby Boomers, but what about those left behind, the one in between 50 through 60 these are the ones left out, unless they have a medical disability they are left to defend for themselves. 

Which I think is a Direct Discrimination of their rights they have been cut off from getting hired by Big Companies Rules that are out dated.  The President and other advocate retraining yet when these people do just that (my brother have trained for many position retrained) they are cut off by rules that they are to old to join certain unions to name to of the biggest one the Electrician Union and the Pluming Union.  There are more, but these come to mind.

Because of their age people are told (after training) that they do not qualify for these position because of their age.  Experience should be the key to optaining a job as well as getting into any Union not age why are there age requirement yet some parts of our Governing forces want to raise the Social Security Age Liminate.  This will not work because Companies have age limination giving them the rights to discsriminate against any one over the age of fifty.  My brother and others want to work yet are denied to do so.  The Federal and State Government who are pushing the reeducation for jobs, had better take another look and decided what to do about those In Be Tween.  

Training phycilities and School, that are receiving Grant Money are charging hugh amount to the student who are not guranteed a job, with out this gurantee these people will be unable to pay and now are thrown int a situation worst than the ones that they was in before the retraining.  If companies that could hire keep descriminating against the ageded there is not point in reeducation if training phycilities and collages are not telling those who are being reeducated and retrained that they will not qualify for certain position although these programs are offered, they are not giving those who apply for these program any way of making a life decesion of their own.  What shoule we as society do just sit back and watch this social injustice play out?  No not now I will be contacting my Governor as well as State Senator, this can not go on please do the same for your Citizen In Between.
