Young Workers Face Reverse Ageism In The Workplace

Ageism in the workplace has been known to affect older workers. While the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) forbids age discrimination against people who are 40 and older, this is largely symbolic and only effective to instances of overt age discrimination.

58% of workers in their fifties report facing age discrimination of some sort, and of those who experience age discrimination, 95% report that it is a common occurrence at work.

However, ageism being a problem in the workplace is not exclusive to older professionals. Young professionals also experience forms of ageism in the workplace. Some media coverage of this problem has been referring to it as “reverse ageism.”

What is “reverse ageism?”
We typically think of older professionals when the term “ageism” is used. As of late, the term “reverse ageism” has been used to describe a similar set of concerns facing younger workers.
