Comments on: Improving U.S. jobs trend favors old over young Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: txgadfly Wed, 14 Mar 2012 15:04:09 +0000 One reason the old are being hired over the young is that the old now must increasingly work to eat no matter how low the pay. A good example is the huge number of unemployed native born engineers in the USA, while the Government continues to both push foreigners via visa programs and increased engineering education for a dead occupation. Older Americans bring more ability to the table and work for the same wages as the young, or less.

We can all discount older people working on Wall Street, the big Banks at executive level, and Government. Their numbers are insignificant when considered against the whole population, although they make up a clear majority of the “ruling class”.
