That term has come to denote the folks who end a career in one field. According to AARP research, about a third intend to work after that. Only at something else.
The hunt for that something else puts them in competition with youth. Age bias is real. And it's virulent.
As many know, the outplacement centers in major metro areas are also bulging with unemployed professionals over-60. Most will never work again. They will likely opt to receive Social Security early. Good luck paying medical care insurance out of their own pocket.
The practical solution to age bias is creating more jobs. Good ones. It was Lee Iacocca, when leading the turnaround at Chrysler, who damned the proliferation of boring, low-paying, dead-end jobs. The new president can embrace that same meme. Good jobs will bring more back into the work force. In itself that could blow up age bias.
BTW, legal remedies take way too long.
