It is an accepted norm in professional life not to ask people their age, especially during times like interview process. Govt EEOC also states that age discrimination is illegal. Yet YC asks for your age on its application form? Heard of it from some people who said they viewed that question like oh, ‘is this how I’ll be judged, instead of just on my business idea?
Didn’t know about it until now and it made me wonder if YC is as prejudiced as others have been saying.
