As many as 100,000 IBM staff axed in recent years as Big Blue battles to reinvent itself from IT's 'old fuddy duddy'

Its exactly that...

Its nothing to do with lack of modern skills, nothing to do with not having the groovy image, its everything to do with those employees having the nerve to have had a career and accrued a decent pay packet despite recent years of zero raises.

And its not just IBM either... HPE, DXC and others are playing this game.

However even if this is the selection basis, its still ageism and still going to land them (all) in court.
