    It’s really fascinating to see all you guys who DON’T work at IBM saying this is not going on at IBM. Bizarre.

      Of course everyone understands that. It’s also illegal.

      I worked at IBM few years ago and used to work with bunch of old folks. I was 25 and my team mate was 67, returning as a contractor after retirement. They have too many old technologies being used internally and too many old folks. If I were Ginnie, I’d fire old folks and hire some fresh brains for sure. Their products aren’t so competitive in today’s market.

    Typical case of people confusing correlation with causation

      Once again, there may be other correlated factors. Why fire someone that’s a valuable employee simply for their age?

      I work at IBM. People get fired for being old. Ask any manager.

    My plan is to save early and go into academia when I'm too old

      Good plan on paper. Read about it. It is a hell hole of entrenched politics. You can work for free.

    I’m confused. It looks like IBM was looking to cut fat, and went after the largest offenders (those that make the most money). Are companies no longer allowed to address budgeting issues without because accused of X?

    • If said company is making actual money and growing revenue based on products the younger crowd is developing, then sure. But when those products are just meh, and the only solution is to 'Agile' because everyone that knows how to actually engineer software has been cut...then yeah, accuse away. Shareholders should actually be upset by this rather than thinking about a short-term bump.

      Read the article. They had a point system that explicitly awarded points to younger workers just for being younger.

    It’s business. Not saying it’s right but it’s business!
    These oldies cost too much in $/unit work so it’s not beneficial for ibm to keep them

    Age Discrimination is more prevalent than Gender but see which gets outsized attention. It is all about headlines and clicks.

    Ahhh I love being in mainframe at the ripe age of 29. Don’t have to worry about lays off, etc and the baby boomers don’t get fired, they just die.

      That’s because there’s 5 of you left. If you die, the Z world would be without a leader.
