age discrimination

Extracts from this document...


"An aged man is but a paltry thing, a tattered coat upon a stick." This is seeded in many people's mind.What's wrong with the aged people?What problems do old people face in the society? Age discimination means treating aged people in a unfair way.Commonly, the hardship of aged people are unemployment and unavaliable insurance.Companies will hire young people, rather than old people.Insurance companies give low offer for elderly, and even refuse the application of the ageds.

Summing up, an aged person is not "a tattered coat upon a stick". They can do a lot, if the society gives chances to them. I think it is crucial for us to give respect to old people. Don't forget that we will become an old person too.They are our treasure and they are the root of us. ...read more.
