Thread regarding IBM layoffs

Older workers press age discrimination claims in challenge to IBM layoffs

“It was out of the blue,” Nelson said. “They didn’t give me a good reason. . . . [But] it was
very clear that they were going to let the most experienced people go, who were the
highest paid people.”

The reason is as stated: $$$.

You mean that mirror that is actually a diamond? The BoD should be in stocks and not the paper kind they are swimming in. It really is criminal what these aholes get away with.

Overt and blatant age discrimination has been a staple at IBM for decades. It's all the more galling when you had a good career going, but got swallowed up by IBM whose incompetent management proceeded to royally sc--w up your former company, and then you get forced out because some clown in HR decides you're getting paid "too much". Some pretty messed up stuff's been going on at IBM for a long time ... and now it's all collapsing like a house of cards. You reap what you sow.
