Lydia DePillis, The Washington Post:
In a weak economy, companies are sometimes all too happy to dump veteran employees, with their higher health-care costs and legacy pensions, for younger ones who expect neither.
Not a problem for me — yet. At 55, maybe I’m not old enough for ageism to be an issue. And I’m blessed with good genes.
Keeping physically fit helps limit age discrimination. You move like a younger person. But you can’t do anything about your genes.
