Age discrimination is a very real problem in the workplace today. In fact, according to a 2018 AARP workplace survey, nearly two out of three workers aged 45 and older said they have seen or experienced age discrimination at work. This survey included 3,900 individuals over the age of 45 who were employed or seeking employment.
