Age discrimination is an issue, which is presently in its budding stage and if continued to be ignored like this only, the problem can soon become a major issue, which the country would not be able to fight against.
The latest case of age discrimination happened with Mr. James Ford, who has recently beaten his cancer and is similarly eager as any other job seeker to enter the workforce and resume his active business life.
But it seems that the things are no more same for the 71-years-old Mr. Ford, as despite carrying an experience of four decades in marketing and communications, his career opportunities have overpowered his age factor upon his talent.
Explaining the bitter facts of life, he said: “The attitude is: ‘I want to hire someone who will be with me for five or 10 years; I don’t want someone who’s going to die on me next week, or get sick’”, says Ford, a 71-year-old who lives in Sherwood Park, just outside Edmonton.
Adding Ford said that ageism is taking up in the roots of the country and the Canadian Society as a prejudice. The issue of age discrimination has started affecting the tectonic shift in workplace demographics. The issue will soon grow into a problem that the country would not be able to ignore any further.
