"Of course, if the AG really understood discrimination, she'd be asking job boards to eliminate options that needlessly force people to show just how freaking old they are - like drop down graduation date menus."

This was my first thought when understanding the complaint!

Exactly! Those dates are rarely, if ever, relevant to one's ability to do the job. So, why are they even sought?

Not all jobs posted on job boards are "corporate jobs," many are for hourly positions that some seniors would be happy to have, for the money and potential companionship. Also, some people still need to eat, regardless of age, and life can be difficult when high medical bills and meager Social Security payments make putting food on the table a challenge.
