TheDepartment of Labor`s Bureau of Labor Statistics had predicted thatby 2010 the number of workers of age fifty-five and above wouldincrease by 49.1%. The increase would see the younger employeeslesser than the 50%. However, 40% of the older people terminate theirjobs earlier than expected due to sicknesses. Those who terminatejobs at an older age have lower chances of securing another one ascompared to the younger men. It was indistinguishable whether theemployers layoff older workers out of economic reasons. The olderemployees demand higher salaries, and there is a potential salarypension liability. That way, the younger employees are preferred tothe older employees.
