    Their boss would call them “grandpas,” “old farts,”and “old bastards.” So when the eight Texas dockworkers, who all are at least 50 years old, were fired on August 27, 2007 and replaced with younger hires, they thought something discriminatory might be going on.

    I hate frivolous laws suits as much as anybody.
    But when these guys were fired and replaced with younger guys I say yea, sue and collect. Good for them!
    Shame on Central!

    Seems to me that there is a big difference between spilling a cup of coffee, and age discrimination. If these people were actually fired and replaced with younger workers for no other reason than their age, I say they have a genuine case.

    If more drivers would do as these drivers did, those "workforce reductions" would stop.
