I understand that the unspoken standard in Europe and China is no one over 40 as a new hire, especially in government positions. It would be very plausible, wouldn't it? The Good Life for the healthy and productive.(No Mo' welfare, no suh!)Over a certain age and it's off to the Soylent Green plant. Bye, Ma!
