Bull... here in Va, the rail road went into Lynchburg, a few yrs back,. They set up in big hotel conference room. Being there for an interview was arranged by the VA employment commission. The job was for breakmen.. they wanted people quite a few people... Everyone had a seat... everyone was given a sheet of paper. You were instructed to write your name on the paper and lay it on the desk in front of you. THEN the woman walked around BY SIGHT she looked at people, and picked up a number of the papers with the names. THEN she called out all the names...and said..."IF I called out your name, you may get up and leave now...You will not be interviewed, You will not be considered for any position"... Many got up to leave... After getting out side a few men were livid... very angry and said it was racial descrimination, because they weren't white. It wasn't racial... These people all had one thing in common! They were all over 40 or appeared to be over 40. The Virginia Employment Commission, said "IT was not age discrimination" went on to say "Age discrimination is nearly impossible to prove" bull ****
