By at least one metric, men and women in technology are treated the same: As they get older, they struggle to get hired in equal measures. Regardless of gender, people ages 52 to 70 are 60 percent less likely to be hired for a tech job than their participation in the workforce would suggest, according to new research from Visier Inc., a Vancouver human resource analytics software company. Slightly younger workers, between 34 and 51, are 33 percent less likely, according to the data. “It seems that ageism is at the top of the pile,” said Dave Weisbeck, chief operating officer at Visier. Complaints about age discrimination at the largest tech companies outnumber those for gender or race, he said.
