Many people who are 40 and over continue to face a difficult time finding a new job in New Jersey despite prohibitions against age discrimination. One issue that has arisen when looking into why some older workers have a difficult time finding jobs has been the use of Facebook job ads specifically targeted to younger people. There are several lawsuits currently being pursued that challenge employers' practices of seeking out young people as an audience for job advertisements.
While the American employment rate may be strong, some older workers in New Jersey are still finding it difficult to lock down a job after they reach a certain age. According to a recent survey of adults 45 and older, age discrimination is still very prevalent, especially when it comes to looking for a job.
