    Age Discrimination in Employment: An Unseen Epidemic
    Saturday, October 27 (11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.)
    Lower Level Meeting Room
    Today, age 30 is considered old in some industries, particularly high tech. Surveys show that two out of three workers between ages 45 and 74 say they have seen or experienced age discrimination at work. Job seekers over age 35 cite age discrimination as a top obstacle to getting hired.
    Patricia G. Barnes, an attorney and former judge, is the author of "Betrayed: The Legalization of Age Discrimination in the Workplace and Overcoming Age Discrimination in Employment." She will discuss what constitutes age discrimination, how the scale has moved in recent years, and why age discrimination has been epidemic and unaddressed for 50 years.
