Letter: Federal government discriminates against promoting older workers

A reader response to the story, New initiative looks to attract baby boomers to fed jobs. From my experience, the federal government discriminates against the promotion of older workers at this time. Now, they are suggesting hiring them in directly at even older ages? I bet that they'll offer them higher grades (based on their private-sector salaries) than the promotions that are being denied career civil servants.
