This weekend's New york city Times op-ed about the ageism individuals over 50 face in the workplace includes a lovely anecdote via JK Scheinberg, the renowned Apple engineer who got Mac OS working on Intel processors.

A little uneasy after retiring in 2008, at 54, he figured he 'd be a great suitable for a position at an Apple store Genius Bar, in spite of being two times as old as anybody else at the group interview. 

"En route out, all three of the job interviewers singled me out and stated, 'We'll be in touch,'" he said. "I never heard back."

Although Apple customers would've been fortunate to have Scheinberg as their technology assistance, we can at least rest easy knowing the renowned engineer desired the job more as a pastime than as a method to earn money.

The op-ed likewise called for age diversity in the workplace, pointing out that women face discrimination in the office starting at the childhood of 32, when they start getting passed over for promotions, broadening the pay space.

An info designer who got a job at a technology start-up at 55 explained how alienating the age gap was in between her and her coworkers. She stopped after her employer told her, "You sound just like my mother" throughout an argument.

Age discrimination has far more sinister repercussions, specifically in the United States, where the majority of the senior can't exclusively count on social security for their earnings.
