We over-50 are more assertive, at least legally. Mildred Block is 85 years old. Forever she manned a particular beer stand at Shea Stadium. Then her employer Aramark, reports Jennifer Millman in NBC NEW YORK, replaced her with a 75 year old. Block wasn't fired, just reassigned to another selling site.
She sued, contending the tips at the new locations weren't as good. The judge tossed the case. Millman does not indicate whether Block will appeal. There were allegedly customer complaints that the line didn't move quickly enough when Block was in charge. She blamed that on her younger assistant who didn't make change fast enough.
