How does one of the country’s largest tech giants quietly push out this many older workers? Don’t we have laws to protect people at the end of their careers?

I started with IBM as an engineer right out of college in the early 1980s. It was an amazing place to work with amazing benefits although at the cost of lower wages. My first salary was 24K/year. Over the years, starting around 1990 there was a systematic take-away of benefits and clear and obvious age discrimination going on, but wages were only going up at the inflation rate. At the time Gerstner was brought in, IBM began mass layoffs targeting older workers. All of their actions against employees are well documented. At this point, everything that could be imagined from the looting of pensions to the selling of the artwork off the walls was the norm. In the late 1990s, despite being a high performer, it was clear that there would be no long-term future there for older workers unless you had been selected for executive management. I did not wait for the next of an unending series of periodic layoffs where the "bottom 10% + special individuals" of the workforce, primarily older workers, were thrown out, (per the Jack Welch model) and instead resigned to join the real high-tech world. I had a successful career in several Big high-tech companies (you know their names) moving up the ranks, eventually becoming a senior manager. Even though I am now retired, I am still called into work for my last employer to help with particularly tough problems. There is no age discrimination problem there. IBM's age discrimination policy resulted in many like me leaving (either voluntarily or not) and making their competitors stronger. It was their loss. I do not think that it is unrelated to IBM now being just a shell of its former self.

I don't get it why would the company care how old someone is?
isn't it possible that older employees or just not as effective at keeping up with new technology.
That would mean that old people being fired more often is correlation not causation.

Corporations in the US have no loyalty to their employees. They'll replace you with an unpaid temp or an outsourced laborer in a heartbeat. Never 100% rely on your employer and always try to stay knowledgeable and up to date in whatever field you are working in.

I don't really understand the big deal... IBM is fundamentally changing their business, they are no longer running legacy systems... why train 20,000 on new technologies when plenty know them already? Lets face it, these old dudes are the ones who made IBM lag behind the industry and they still haven't recovered...

There are many older employee who are pillars of the campany

And there are definitely a lot of people slacking, young or old.

The campany pays pretty low, and less demanding workload. So more productive or ambitious people tends to jump to other high paying tech companies.

The ones left behind had higher percentage of slackers.

I worked there, all my coworkers are nice people. But to be fair to the company, which was also nice to me, I think it's justified that they pip lower performing employees. Unfortunately job performance sometimes just happened to be correlated with how often you stayed in the same warm cozy company.

Also to be fair, the campany laid off a few very productive employee that I know, and ended up hurting the team. But hey, those people are valuable anywhere, they got better paying jobs somewhere else in the end.

In the end of the day, the company has to make money to pay everyone

They fired all the US staff and sent their jobs offshore at a fraction of the cost (Brazil, India, Costa Rica, and even Canada for customer facing positions). Professional services are provided almost entirely by exploited Indian workers on questionable temporary work visas.
