It would appear that ageism was a factor in the latest cull. Many corporates proceed with layoffs knowing that bringing lawsuits takes money and is well out of reach of the average joe, especially older workers who often not in a position to fight back. These corporates have very deep pockets. It's all about probability, risk and who holds the balance of power. Staff are considered expendable. As to why many loyal and high performing employees were shed in the latest round, it's all about management doing all they can to protect themselves, even if it calls for doing irrational things. If there's some consolation from all of this, it's knowing that what goes around, comes around. Corporates also seem to forget, that people who are laid off tell other people what such and such a company has done to them and that they are a ** company to work for. Word of mouth spreads quickly. This must affect have an effect on recruitment.
