Ageism solved – or political correctness now gone mad?

Now Im all for hiring the best person man or woman of any age for the job, but are the new age laws about to come into force a step too far? Football clubs offer shorter contracts to players in their 30s. Is that discriminatory?

Companies ask for 5 years of experience. Is that discriminatory to young people. Well maybe – but surely if you want someone with 5 years experience thats what you should ask for?

Can someone tell me that my concerns are misplaced and its just about making sure those people who are young, and older people will now be given a fairer crack of the whip?
