I was laid off after Obama cancelled the Constellation program, and age over 50 of course. However what they did is perfectly legal and they know that. This is how it works, they know that age discrimination is illegal so they cannot admit that they cut because of age. However they get away with it because there is no law against pay discrimination, that is the oldest workers are generally higher paid senior persons. So managers are told to cut the highest paid and by default they cut the oldest workers, get it. No law against getting rid of the highest paid people. They do get rid of very few younger as tokens however.

LM MST Moorestown laid off 50 as of July 27. 90% are age 50 and up, some with 20-30 years with the company. From talking with others who were laid off, their Managers just picked whomever they didn't get along with. You're hired 'at will' and can be laid off 'at will'. I was also laid off but I was only there three years. They are very top heavy with middle management. This was a "Save the Managers job" layoff.

One would have to be blind, deaf, and mentally deficient to believe there's no age discrimination. Who are you gonna believe, top management or you're lying eyes?

by | Post ID:

Yes.

About 80% of the people in my group that were laid off were over 50 years old.

I was laid off in August of 2014 from the Sunnyvale facility. There was a meeting where they introduced us to the state unemployment people, discussed COBRA, etc. I was the youngest guy in the room at 58, not including the HR person and the outside guests. Some people were voluntary, but some e.g. me, were not.

ABSOLUTELY!!! Lockheed has an Engineering Leadership Development Program that is not available to anyone with more than 3 years of experience. So senior people are not allowed to enter the leadership development program. They are putting inexperienced engineers into management positions. The ironic thing is most of them quit the company after they have been out of the program a couple of years.

Why should Lockheed Martin be any different? At least they are offering packages to entice people to leave voluntarily (according to news reports about LM Aero and unconfirmed rumors about LM MST)
