Mar. 24, 2017 Experience Discrimination

On Mar 24, 2017 NPR’s Ina Jaffe wrote “Too Much Experience To Be Hired? Some Older Americans Face Age Bias” about age discrimination. Prof. David Neumark of University of California, Irvine sent out 40,000 resumes with age as the only difference. The older the person the less likely they to be called back. Older women  were the most affected. One recruiter blew the whistle and went to San Francisco law firm Altshuler Berzon and the course is working its way to the US Supreme Court.

On Jun. 18, 2012 The New Yorker’s Jill Lepore wrote “Benched” about history of the US Supreme Court leading up the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision where Justice Stevens said “a democracy cannot function effectively when its constituent members believe laws are being bought and sold.” Lepore wrote “If not only legislators but judges serve at the pleasure of lobbyists, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers. Law will be commerce. And money will be king.”
