How Ageism and Wage Inequality Are Destroying Our Country*
* working title
There is desperate need to save ourselves and generations that follow from the ongoing demise of the American workforce perpetrated by unmitigated greed, and the complete disregard for a dilemma facing millions of Americans right now.
How Ageism & Wage Inequality Are Destroying Our Country is a ground- breaking book that dares tell the truth about the plight of American workforce as we enter 2019.
After 20+ years in talent acquisition and human capital manage- ment, author Vinay Singh has seen and heard it all. And, over the years, he has not liked what he’s seen:
- A 56-year-old business technology director selling suits in a Macy’s
- A 50-year-old senior copywriter at a Fortune 500 company, now an Uber driver
- A woman told she can’t expect a promotion because “no ‘skirt’ will become an executive at this company.”
- CEOs letting go of workers while raking in over $16 Million in compensation
- Companies using code words to entice young- er employees, while discriminating against others.
- Employees making the same wages in 2017 that they made in 1997
- A middle class disappearing right under our eyes!
This is what How Ageism & Wage Inequality Are Destroying Our Country is all about. Singh brings his passion to the pages as he delves into the demise of the American Dream, underemployment, wage suppression, and age discrimination. Supported by facts and figures from leading media sources, Singh provides an eye-opening account of the current problems facing the future of the American workforce, and it isn’t a pretty picture.
How Ageism & Wage Inequality Are Destroying Our Country is a must read for the 90% of Americans who deserve the opportunity to enjoy productive careers and retire comfortably with dignity. America was built on hard work and the opportunity to succeed. But as Singh points out, unless changes are made in the compensa- tion structures as well as hiring and firing mindset of today, most Americans will not have the chance to ful- fill their goals and dreams.
"Ageism and Wage Inequality are both at epidemic levels. We’ve not seen this kind of disparity in our country in modern times. Companies have done wrong by the employees for decades. Corporate leaders must stand up and challenge the blatant disparity that effects the majority of employees in America by implementing real solutions that benefits everyone, not just a few.
Until there is real compensation growth with career structure and stability, people will not be able to meet the ever growing demands of economic living. Former presidents created The American Dream for our country’s people that with hard work all Americans can achieve their dreams.
Ageism and Wage Inequality were NOT part of their vision.
We can have the dream back."

Unfair Workforce Practices
Tactics has been masked as company non-competes and corporate talent acquisition write job descriptions in language to dissuade groups of people from applying.
Ageism doesn’t care about your gender, your ethnicity or your physical appearance. It is bred out of sheer bias toward having gained experience and lived to middle age.
Every year the U.S. government tells us about the annual wage increase. While everything else goes up in cost, salaries have not. As a result, the middle class barely exists.
