While allowing higher paid employees to work from home they are making all lower paid employees whose jobs are called essential go in. For a while they had scattered work hours too for essentials. Why not go back to the shifts and alternative day in the office work cycles for those that they deem essential since that option is being given to those that work from home.

You said it yourself - new college graduates. That means less experience, about 20 years less if your age assumptions are right. If i were a manager and I had to cut people, it comes down to who is going to do the best job and keeping a group with 60-ish years of combined work experience over a group that has 10 years seems a pretty easy business decision. Either way this is a terrible position to be in but it's part of what managers do. Maybe in time you will see this and I sure hope you are never on the receiving end of a layoff.
I see this post is being answered by those that feel entitled. Fired for being attractive?? I don't think the DOL thinks that is a cause for filing a discrimination. Maybe they had the smarts but were making more than their worth while the others make less and bring more to the table.
You are part of the same group that look at your phones all day, don't work through lunch, leave on time, join any group that allows you to be in senior management's face and talk about the latest video on Tik Tok for 20 minutes each day, YOU are the same group that walks out with the group is in crisis AFTER the manager askes you to work late. YOU are the same group that gripes when you are told you need to schedule vacation or a non emergency day off. YOU are the same group who complain and trash colleagues who get a promotion when you don't. YOU are the same group who makes fun of other employees and laugh behind their back.
they fired 3 of the best new employees that we ever had, College smart, young, attractive, and extremely innovative, while they kept 4 - 40+ years with the company Senior team members that are showing a fast
- & hard mental decline, but it is okay in the JP world.
it's unfortunate how colleagues feel of senior, older, staff that either love to keep busy and find pride in their work OR need to work because of the various economic downturns that have impacted their savings.
I know that the id–ts posting discriminatory age comments are asking their parents for help or living off their parents at the nursing homes. If that is not the case they might just be envious of individuals who can do a better job and ARE recognized for doing a better job. Age has no limits, stupidity does.
