"Are you on it sometimes the criticism is so what I mean these big companies are doing it so does it really matter I mean do you think this EEOC ruling will actually have any teeth so Facebook has had to make a lot of changes they've had to take away a lot of those options that employers could used to discriminate so now if you are I wanted to go in advertise a job at pro public are at the take away we wouldn't be able to choose based on age or gender you actually don't have those options in front of you anymore so in that sense it this push back at least have had some teeth whether or not you can credit not directly to the federal government is kind of an open question what's especially interesting about this E. E. O. C. batch of decisions is that it's the first time it's actually not just about Facebook it's about the people who had all of Facebook's tools in front of them and chose to use them in these ways so it's specific companies being called out and basically saying you know you're on the line for this too this was a crowdsourcing project where as you said you heard from a lot of people who thought they were victims of age discrimination when you came out with the results of your work how what was the reaction I mean did people finally say oh yes this validates what I was thinking I knew it all along or or what happened we've heard from the thousands of people who think that they have been discriminated against based on age but it's so hard to prove and there isn't an incredibly strong presidents of those protections working for people so in this case you know we had his email list of a thousand people and when we found these ads that specifically said your you can't see this if you're over forty I think of course people were outraged and they were upset but on some level they were also validated like a bunch of people who I talked to would write back and say it's actually kind of a relief to know that this isn't just in my head what we're talking about the law and the federal government's law protecting employers we're talking about people over the age of forty yes it's people over the age of forty and its setting any kind of age cap in a digital Screamin Asian law that so far seems to be what the EOC actually does believe is illegal you've also done a lot of reporting on age discrimination more broadly I mean is there a connection between this type of digital discrimination and and more traditional age discrimination again for employees over forty that you see companies engaging in there's definitely a connection in people's lives that experience that we were talking about before of thinking there something out there and not quite being able to prove it a lot of people what they'll right into us to say is I've submitted my resume to thousands of places and I never heard back I just have to think that there's something out there that either I don't know or that I do know but can't prove it even in my own personal life I think age discrimination as more of our reporting has found and it's so real it gets so real it's so present it's so hard for people who planned a career one way and haven't had it play out in a way that lets them support their families or retire or collect the kinds of benefits that they had been frankly facing the entire end of their lives around and so I think that feeling of I can't find a new job when I need one it makes everyone's will feel like what they have now is that much more tenuous and that much more into Kerr powerful stuff I've been speaking with Arianna Tobin engagement editor and reporter for pro publica Arianna thank you so much thanks for having me all right about smart devices your lex's your Google homes you're smart watches a lot of consumers know the privacy risks but they're buying these products anyway and you have thoughts on this the three of calls from Yonkers New York no I don't use smart technology like a lecture specifically because some hearing cases where the technology is actually recording information whether or not it's on or off and sending it back to the.

Just your personal understanding of what happens. Well look. This is personal to me. I was laid off. I'm a single father of twins ends and i was laid off in the very week. They started college and i thought i'd be out for a couple of weeks. A couple of months. I was out fifteen months which did nothing in pretty to our finances. The perspective of being both older and laid off and having kids were twenty two and just starting out in the labor market and facing using a world a decade of internships and one year contract gigs is that you get a perspective of what's happening at both ends of the age age spectrum in this united states labor market and what you're watching the fraying of the employer employee relationship which we've counted on to keep the society together certainly during the postwar period well h- just real brief peter gosling i mean is this a time that has passed. I mean one of the things you right about. Propublica is all the ibm are said to you this we were in for life. This is what we thought but is that a delusion. Now i mean that's just not the way the workforce works anymore. It's not the way the workforce works right now. As a society we have to ask if we wanna have this other other different way of <hes> of working where it is all a transactional. It is all temporary. It's all side hustles and i. I think that the answer is if we really imagined what it would be like to have that kind of world. We wouldn't want that kind of world and we wouldn't afford that..
