What’s the negative impact of ageism on society?
Ageism unfairly belittles seniors who have worked hard their entire lives only to discover that “The Golden Years” aren’t really gold. Ageism’s impact doesn’t only involve seniors but their families and, in the end, our entire society, too.
From being refused interest-free credit, a new credit card, car insurance, or travel insurance to receiving a lower quality of service in a restaurant or shop, and this might just be the tip of the iceberg.
Workplace ageism forces people out in their 40s and 50s, causes health problems like cancer, heartaches, depression, suicide, etc.; these eventually cause poverty like subsidized housing usage, foodbank usage, and increased senior poverty.
