Comments on: Non-retired Baby Boomers anxious about more than jobs http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/08/08/non-retired-baby-boomers-anxious-about-more-than-jobs/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: liberty slots online http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/08/08/non-retired-baby-boomers-anxious-about-more-than-jobs/comment-page-1/#comment-489483 Wed, 01 Oct 2014 14:31:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=41448#comment-489483 Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

I work in HR at a very large company and I can tell you that anyone over 40 years old just isn’t wanted anymore. Unless you’re already CEO (and you had your chance to get there — welcome to competition too, people). Over 40s are generally overpaid, slow, usually fat, smoke, sometimes bald, need workplace cordiality (instead of just getting to the point and being cutthroat competitive) and cost way too much in terms of having to support their children in terms of healthcare and time (e.g., going to their kids’ school activities instead of working). Romney will change all of it and you are in for a rude awakening: pack up your bags and put your pictures of the family in a cardboard box because I can replace anyone of you over-40-somethings at 10% of your cost (e.g., I can get a 29 year old PHD in Indian for $10,000 per year; not $100,000 per year) and they will work 16 hours a day with no healthcare and they will not complain one bit about “bad working conditions” or a lunch break. Romney and Ryan are coming and we’re going to speed up foreclosures to clear the market so get packing, people. Thank you for listening and hope you pay attention to my good advice here.

think about this, no smart businessman invests hundreds of millions of dollars to not get his “investment” back. the investment is that mitt and company will give them all they want….in the case of the casino guy…he will get out of jail free card.
