Lets hope they make an example out of this

Replace the word "age" by something like "non aryan" or "non white" and a pretty grim picture emerges.

Age discrimination should for the law, be treated equivalent to racial discrimination.

It is an issue all over the world that in companies old guys on higher management positions decide that other guys have to be booted based on their age.

Since IBM is a well known company, it would be great if they either have to pay a very substantial fine, or the management involved faces jail time for this.
