Today, I was fired from the job I've had for 15 years. My boss recently hired his daughter as a senior manager and she made several cuts because, as she put it, the sales team was "too old and lame". I didn't know being a young bitch was a requirement to work at a furniture warehouse. FML

Bring it up with HR for wrongful firing to appeal the decision, and "too old and lame" is not a valid reason for firing. Stealing, bad metrics, smoking, rude behavior, sleeping on the job, not showing up are. Too old and lame aren't.

HR works to protect the employers, not the employees. Personally learned that lesson the hard way. OP needs to file a claim with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and contact a lawyer.

You could sue for age discrimination. Ageism.

Have you seen the customers at a furniture warehouse? Old and lame is the major demographic!

Hipsters get their furniture at thrift stores or IKEA, that is, if they just don’t deal with what they have in their parents’ basements.
