Age discrimination in history

In 1967, congress passed the Age Discrimination in Employment Act in 1967 because older workers were threatened by the thought of getting fired because of their age. Older workers who are forty years old were in the fear of getting fired in replacement of younger workers. They were seen as not forty years old but instead over fifty. All of the most discrimination happened before the times of 1967, where before the Employment Act with elders but also discrimination happens to children and teens. For example, if a person wants to hang out with some ninth graders and they are still in middle school the older kids might not let them because of their age. Also, when people see a big group of teens in the mall they typically think that they are doing something wrong because of their age. That is not always true though because younger kids or even adults could be in a group doing something wrong also.
