An explorative study of age discrimination in it wages
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the United States of America reported in 2002 that age discrimination was its fastest-growing complaint. In this article, we examine the treatment of information technology professionals, using the Human Capital Model. The model results suggest that age treatment discrimination exists, but varies, across industries and job functions. We present explorative theories to explain why such variations exist, and draw managerial implications based on the results.
