Workplace discrimination: Replacing old with young is less costly

Many Baby Boomers in Florida are reaching a time in their careers at which their age may be seen as a disadvantage. Those who are now in their 50s and 60s likely went through college with a heightened awareness of their rights and may not be inclined to put up with age discrimination in their places of work. Fortunately, help is available from the attorneys at The Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale, who are aggressive advocates for those facing workplace discrimination.

There is also a marked increase in the number of men who assume the roles of primary caregivers across the country, including in Florida.
