1.How do you evaluate this approach to workforce reduction? What if (anything) did  Abbott do right and what did he do wrong? What additional information do you need  about the downsizing effort in order to fully understand the process?  I believe this workforce reduction is wrong because they are clearly using the early retirement  program as a way to layoff of people. And that is what they did wrong, they saw which  individuals were eligible for the early retirement program and highly considered laying off those  people. Abbott should have giving those people an option whether they wanted to retire or keep  working.  2.  Three months after this meeting Garcia (age 58) and Lopota (age 55) were discharged.  Based on the information provided, were Garcia and Lopota victims of age discrimination?  Explain your answer. If necessary, what specific additional information do you require  before you can take your position? Provide a set of “if-then” propositions. I do agree that Garcia and Lopata were discharged based on the information given that they were  part of age discrimination. Having a early retirement program is basically a way for them to  layoff unnecessary workers. Since they had had 55 people working for them between the ages of  55 and up, they consider Garcia and Lopata as part of this early retirement program. 3.
