Another reason for an employer to not hire an old person is because of advancing technologies. Elders lack in knowledge the high-tech areas in new industries (“Age Discrimination Workplace”). In 1982, the median age of the labor force was 34.6, compared to the 40-plus of today. Increasingly, the U.S. labor pool will consist of people who are covered by the ADEA.
Absenteeism Absenteeism occurs due to employee sickness, and low rates of absenteeism correlates with employees who have been in long-term care for a longer period (Singh, 2010, p. 426). The longer the employee has been working at the facility or residence, the less likely it is that they will be absent from work. It is important to manage absenteeism so that employees will take their absent days more seriously and prevent them from taking sick or personal days. According to Singh (2010, p. 426), management regulates absenteeism with written policies for an excused and unexcused absence; in addition, procedural consequences are listed for each additional absence. Turnover and Retention There are fortunate facilities that have dedicated employees; hence having lower staff turnover rates.
An analysis of our Social Security system reveals one major challenge to the people of the United States; the government will not be able to sustain this program under its current structure. Some people in the United States believe there is no need to plan for retirement and that Social Security will cover our needs as society reaches retirement age. Some people do not believe this is true because we do not know what we will be able to count on when we become older. We should only be able to trust what we can provide for ourselves because of the situations that are at hand in the United States. Social Security is barely taking care of the people who are currently on it, and the population is ever rising that we need to be put on Social Security.

Employees who are overworked will tend to resent the facility and decide to quit and find a “better” place to work, but their all the same in the policies for being mandated. A facility without employees can not thrive, let alone even exist. The facilities should put in guidelines to help alleviate the stress and headache of having to be forced over. Employees should earn days off after being mandated and should not be forced to work more than five days in a row. Working holidays are a given in this choice of career, but to be forced to work seven days in a row because the said holiday falls on the only day off the employee has, is completely uncalled for.
