In U.S. society, the elderly tend to be less and less visible in mainstream activities, in organizations, and in the workplace. One theory assigns this to ageism. Do you think that is the best explanation for this phenomenon? If yes, why do you think so? If not, what do you think is the best alternative explanation? How do you feel about the way U.S. society treats the elderly?
Weegy: I do agree that ageism is the best way to describe it in which one discriminates another due to their age. Older people are not able to function like younger people do due to the natural physiology of their body. [ [ In America where "work" is valued, they tend to look down on older people because they are not able be as productive as their younger counterpart. In a way, I think that society treats seniors poorly because of this. ] ] (More)
