    What is the oldest that you would consider for a new employee? Sure there are laws, but just between us kids....

    I would consider them a valuable asset. They would bring skills, knowledge and experience that can be implemented into one's own business. Old skills, knowledge and experience isn't necessarily bad qualities to hold but useful to 'convert or apply' creatively.

    It depends on the time needed to train the new employee. There are jobs which require almost no time to train them. In such cases the age doesn't matter. On the other hand, some very specific jobs require months of training (and it means to spend a lot of money for the company) so it is better to hire somebody who will stay as long as possible.
