Betrayed: The Legalization of Age Discrimination in the Workplace
 

Authored by Patricia G. Barnes
Edition: 1

Critical acclaim for Betrayed: The Legalization of Age Discrimination in the Workplace: "Must read for everyone over 40 ...well-researched and well-written," David M. Godfrey, Senior Attorney, ABA Commission on Law and Aging. This groundbreaking book explains why so many workers in their 40s, 50s and beyond are out of work, laboring in low-wage part-time or temp jobs and struggling to survive. Age discrimination in America is hidden behind phrases like "long-term unemployment" and "early retirement." Moreover, a confluence of failures by American institutions has left older workers with virtually no protection against age discrimination. Attorney Patricia G. Barnes examines the reasons for the failure of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 and the devastating consequences this failure has had for older workers during and since the Great Recession.
