I am 65 and a recent casualty of COVID-19 in as much as been made redundant, checking job site after job site endlessly rejecting possibilities because I know that the market place is geared toward the younger generations. I was a Union Steward/Representative for years and know that age is a protected right but like most laws and regulations in this country they are either ignored or so difficult to prove that it is pointless trying to question an employer’s decision making process. Now studying on a Professional Photographers course up in Houghton-Le-Spring, half way between Durham and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I don’t know how you are supposed to feel at 65 but I do not feel any different from when I was 55,45,35, maybe can’t run as far or do back flips anymore but that aside I feel like we are dumped on the waste heap when we reach a certain age.
