"An 85-year-old New Jersey woman who spent more than a decade manning a beer stand at Mets games cried foul when her employer, Aramark, booted her from her profitable stand during the last season at Shea Stadium and replaced her with a younger woman....A judge tossed Mildred Block's lawsuit yesterday, however, on the grounds that her replacement – 75-year-old Gloria Smith – indicated the concession company did not discriminate against Block based on her age...Block disagrees. She spent nearly 20 years working the stand near right field, where she says she could earn up to $40 per day. Then Aramark moved her to another stand, where she claims the tips were pittance by comparison"
