    It's done all the time in retail and food outlets. They want to pay a lesser wage. Although annoying I don't find it offensive. I think it's a good opportunity for teenagers to get a job!

    From memory, employers can advertise for 'junior' positions, which are paid at junior wages. So it stands to reason that they could turn you down for the job if you're too old, as they can't pay you at junior wages if you are not a junior. But it's a bit of a murky area I think. I don't think they can outright say "you are too old", but could say that you don't fit the job criteria...
