When someone over the age of 55 loses a job it takes them about 4 months longer than their younger counterparts to find another one – and even when they have a job, the scenario is far from rosy for many in New York City. According to a new AARP survey of voters age 50+ in New York City, nearly 50% say they’ve experienced or witnessed some form of age discrimination in the workplace or on the job trail.

 

 

46% of survey respondents said they were concerned about age discrimination at work, and based on the rest of the survey findings, those concerns are valid. An alarming 48% said they either experienced or witnessed at least one of the following regarding themselves, a family member or a friend who has turned 50:

 

  • 26% not been hired for a job because of age.
  • 24% passed over for a raise or promotion due to age.
  • 23% laid off, fired, or forced out of a job since turning 50.
  • 27% encouraged or forced to retire before they preferred to.
  • 23% subjected to unwelcome comments about their age.
