Man sues 'The Apprentice' and Trump over alleged age discrimination


UPI News Service, 01/11/2007 

A man who didn't make the cut for Donald Trump's "The Apprentice" is suing the New York mogul to help older people have a chance on the show.

"If I was the only person who could benefit from this, I would not go through the hassle," said Richard Hewett Jr., 50.

Hewett has also started the Web site stoptrump.com and invited any other older people who suspect that they did not make it onto the "Apprentice" due to discrimination because of their age to join the class-action suit he filed Thursday in federal court, the Boston Herald reported.

The 50-year-old was interviewed for the show in 2005 but was never called back.

"I don't want his money," Hewett stressed. "All I'm looking for is a concession that the group of finalists should better reflect the workforce. The majority of people watching at home are going to better relate to the 45-year-old candidate than the 22-year-old ingenue."
