Facebook has been letting companies run ads for finding employees in such a way that the ads are only shown to young people. Have employers have decided they only want to hire people under 40!? Age discrimination is already illegal. However, companies can easily get around that law because they don't have to give reasons to anyone why they choose to hire certain people and not others. As long as a company is careful to avoid saying something like "you are too old" to a job applicant, they can get away with discriminating that way. .And then to make it worse, the govt very rarely actually enforces any laws that are meant to protect employees. The companies have all the money to give to the politicians so they get away with doing whatever they want.
