What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Minnesota. Unfortunately I chose a field where all of the workers turn out to be considerably older than I. This creates problems because most of the people I work with have 20-30 years experience on me. I have much more education and training than the people I work with, they also treat as if I am a kid and I am almost always the first person laid off. I have worked for many companies who laid me off so they could hire someone who had more experience than I. I have 10 years experience, but someone getting ready to retire has about 40. I really feel as if I have been treated unfairly by most of my employers. Is there anything I can do about this.
