These days, there are certain laws in place federally and across Hawaii that make it illegal to discriminate against you because of your age. Unfortunately, many employers across the state and nation continue to treat those of particular ages differently than others. This can make it hard for you to find or maintain gainful employment.
According to AARP, age discrimination is so prevalent in this country that two-thirds of workers between 45 and 84 claim to have experienced it in the workplace. Additionally, many believe that age is now the single-biggest hurdle preventing jobseekers 35 and older from obtaining employment.
