Submission + - The Difference between Age Discrimination and Employee Inertia (informationweek.com)

CowboyRobot writes: "Jonathan Feldman has a commentary at InformationWeek, in which he argues, "There is bona fide ageism and there is failure to learn new skills in a constantly changing field. Let's not confuse the two. We see this in our IT environments all the time. For example, we got rid of expensive circuit-switched phone calling in favor of less expensive IP-based services. If there's a staffing equivalent in your organization, well, that's regrettable, and we hope that your business handles the matter in a way that preserves the employee's dignity and provides some transition time. But fundamentally, you must part ways.""
