Ageism is a concept, which harbors discrimination on the basis of a person's age. Most often, we can encounter atheism when it comes to looking for a job. Here, however, the elderly have considerable problems with finding a job, and its maintenance. A trend is noticed in Poland, that women above 35 years of age and men after 45 years of age have more problems with finding a job than their younger counterparts.
Many workplaces are looking for young people, and also preferably with student status. You can then expect 100% dedication from them at work for really little money. Because their inexperience is replaced by low wages. In addition, students bring with them many interesting opportunities for the employer, such as discounts on their maintenance, as well as the possibility of drawing up civil law contracts, such as contracts of mandate or contracts for specific work.
Additionally, we can talk about total dedication and full availability, because young people are often career-oriented and prefer starting a family above it. No obligations outside of work, is a very big advantage sought by employers. Therefore, people have a problem with finding a job, who have just started a family or are about to do so. If there is discrimination against young people, then one can speak of the phenomenon of adultism.
