    Under "old" I mean 50 and more (not 30 as they do i Silicone Valley).

    Can a man over 50 get a decent job at all?!

    There are laws against age discrimination in California..The employer can not even have that on the job application...

    As to each and every measure there is a countermeasure.

    They won't write that on thier job offer. They will just make it so that the young person is the one better fitting...

    I used to work in an office in London for a multinational in a BIG, BIG building.
    Visitors impressed by the size would often ask "How many people work here?"
    To which our stock reply was "Oh about 30%"

    Unfortunately it wasn't too far from the truth!

    Brilliant.
    Such detail and loads of visual puns.
    The animator is a genius.

    That's the way world works.

    Young people get chosen over older people, attractive people are chosen over less attractive people, thin over fat, tall over short, rich over poor, celebrities over unknowns.
