Intel accused of discriminating against older workers

Florida residents who follow developments in the technology sector may be aware that Intel laid off 15,000 workers in 2016. The California-based semiconductor manufacturer said that the jobs were eliminated to help the company focus more on growing sectors like artificial intelligence and mobile communications, but questions have been raised about how the company decided which workers to let go.
