Re: Age Discrimination at IBM

I have a friend working at Amazon making 200K/year and he seems to be oblivious to the fact that in the tech sector, everyone is a shooting star.  As bad as this is to say, it's like modelling, people will make a lot of cash but they should invest wisely because the tap turns off quickly. 

Very few professions still compensate seniority.  Teaching and accounting are the only two I can think of off the top of my head but even there, the expiry date may not be 40 but it does get to a point of diminishing returns around 60.

On top of it, I read an article recently: "100 is the 80, Are You Financially Prepared For Retirement?" 

All the way around depressing.
