How IBM quietly pushed out 20,000 older workers

Age discrimination can be very hard to prove.In a ProPublica feature that collected the stories of over 1,400 former IBM employees, it was estimated that a staggering 20,000 American employees ages 40 and over have been eliminated by the company. How does one of the country’s largest tech giants quietly push out this many older workers? Don’t we have laws to protect people at the end of their careers?

    The answer is right there in the question. They can do whatever they want because they are a giant corporation.

    Don’t we have laws to protect people at the end of their careers?

    That’s irrelevant. See above.
