Being laid off when you get old and then trying to get anotherjob
I worked in a warehouse until I was 58. I was caught up in downsizing and got my old ass laid off. I got a job at another company supposedly doing similar work and they fired me after six weeks. I had no idea I was doing that bad and the termination caught me as a complete surprise. Fortunately, I got another job six months later eight miles from my house.
When I got fired I felt useless. The b**** that fired me was very straightforward when she said what amounted to I wasn't worth a damn.
I thought it was just me but a good friend my age also lost his job and be damned if he wasn't fired three times before he gave up and collected his social security. His wife was still employed.
What is it about old guys at your company? Aren't we worth helping?
