They’re getting better opportunities because of this law.

Returning Senator Pia Cayetano has this pitch which was perfect for some post-Labor Day hangover.

The politiko proudly shared how she came to authoring the Anti-Age Discrimination Law, which all started with a simple conversation during a campaign rally.

Back in 2010, a barely-30 woman candidly told Cayetano that she’s having a hard time looking for a job, saying companies always want young blood.

“I started doing some research and realized so many companies only wanted to hire people under 30! Thus began my quest to end that practice,” she said.

“Now.. because of my law, it’s illegal to discriminate because of age!”

What a lifesaver!
