The Everyday Ageism Project

The Everyday Ageism Project aims to capture people’s everyday experiences of ageism. Research by EURAGE shows that across the European region, ageism is the most commonly experienced form of prejudice, yet relatively little is known about how it is experienced, who experiences it and the situations which may leave people vulnerable to age discrimination.

By providing a safe forum for people to anonymously share their experiences, the project aims to understand the consequences of ageism and the ways that age discrimination can affect people’s everyday lives. We also wish to encourage people to share their stories to show that ageism does exist and that it is a valid problem worth discussing.

"It's Cheaper to Pay Younger People"...


Is age related pay justified or fair?


My daughter's work hours were cut hugely when she turned 21 and had to be paid at a higher hourly rate, even though she is a supervisor and younger, lower paid colleagues were given those hours. 

It is not fair.... It's cheaper to pay younger people and it happens across the board in the store in which she works. My daughter works hard and is reliable, she is upset and angry.
