1:00 Too Old, Too Young?
Nearly three-quarters of Canadians believe workplaces are shunning older job applicants based solely on their age, a worrisome finding given labour force trends in Canada. In a survey conducted by Ipsos Reid exclusively for Postmedia News, 74 per cent of those asked either "strongly" or "somewhat" agreed that employers discriminate against older people looking for jobs. The perception is higher among Canadians over the age of 35, but even a majority of those aged 18 to 34 think older workers are subject to ageist attitudes. Do you agree? What is your experience with this?
