Young adults just starting out deserve to be given the same respect and attention as the older generation. It bothers me to hear stories of young people going into businesses and not being treated properly. One 20 something young man shared stories of going into banks and being ignored. He was trying to open an account for his new business and needed information.
This young man was a victim of age discrimination….. There is absolutely no excuse for that. What also disturbs me is what these bankers did not think about…These young adults who are just starting out are the future entrepreneurs and professionals of the world. They aren’t going to be the new kids on the block forever!
That small deposit at a banking institution could have led to a lifetime relationship with that customer. What a shame that they let him walk out the door!
