Target and Ageism
I was recently informed by one of my close team leader friends that I work with at my Target down south that she would be retiring at the end of September. I didn’t really ask too many details. She has been here for a while and I understood why she was.
It wasn’t until later that I found out talking to another one of my friends, that our STL actually informed a different team leader that he would have to quit or retire in order to make room for the younger team members who wanted to be promoted to a team leader. She also informed me that the same team leader who I’d been talking to earlier who is retiring had basically been told the same thing. She told me they have been trying to push her out of her position for a while.
Now I don’t know about you…………. But that does not sound professional or legal in any way shape or form.
But then again. It is Target. They assume they can do whatever the fuck they want.
