Reducing overhead. Fire the $150k senior folks and replace for 1/2 the cost.

The old Fuddy Duddys were hired back as contractors and still run things. They replaced me with four Brazilians in 2006 and had to hire back some of our team to act as ‘backups’.

IIRC a case regarding older workers being laid off/fired to make way for lower paid replacements was,some years ago,decided by SCOTUS in favor of the company doing the firing.

One engineering company I worked for fired most of their key older engineers, replaced them with much younger engineers with no more than two years ago experience. The kids were supposed to copy what the old guys did on previous projects. You seen one chemical plant, you seen them all, besides, have to present that young cool trendy image. And how did that work out?

As others have said, fire the older high paid workers, and hire in younger folks for half the salary.

Any final ear pension growth can then be waived.

Ah, but not because they were younger, because they “possesed needed skills”. Not because they were cheaper but because they were “more diverse”.

Public companies will not make a move involving RIF or restructuring without 100% approval from Legal and HR.

Ageism. This has been worse than “racism.”

Fully qualified, superior older workers pushed out by Ford and many many others to make room for younger little twerps who have confidence without competence. Then industry fails.

And the young ones don’t feel motivated to go to shopping malls or to buy things at local retail. They are used to gazing at a screen for 21 hours a day and buying there. Now they often don’t even buy cars or houses. So the economy and nation we built is being killed by the young ones. The Eloi. (H.G. Wells The Time Machine).

The one acceptable form of discrimination in the workplace.

It isn’t just IBM. Fire the employees who have been there the longest before they retire on the company’s dime. New hires are paid much less than someone who’s been with the company for 20 years.

Or, just hire young women.

Then, pay the laid off workers to come back as contractors and do all the real work.

IBM should be free to fife and hire staff without snowflakes filing lawsuits and the government getting involved.

Get over it!

Fools. Is there a Marxist feminist in charge of IbM? Like JnJ, they are feeding these idiot millenials who then sue them for the opioid crisis.

Common practice. Old workers are too expensive, too much vacation, too much sick leave and too much medical cost. They get rid of them just like people used to get rid of old plow horses or old cows that have had too many calves.

They do this at EA, the game company. I know at least 5 guys who since moved to Hollywood from their Canada operations that it’s an inside “SOP” to fire anyone past 30.
