I am a 57 year old single woman who has worked at the same

I am a 57 year old single woman who has worked at the same company, full time (30 hours), for 10 years. The company has recently hired a new manager (from inside the company). the company is a small business with under 10 employees. Over the past ten years I have negotiated a salary and compensation package including heath care. The past two years I have forgone a raise in my hourly pay rate to compensate for increasing heath insurance costs. Currently the company pays $1200 a month for my health insurance ($14,400 annually). The new manager has presented me with a new health insurance package that would cost me anywhere from over $4000.00 per year to around $3300 per year and have the company pay $6000 to $4000. The Company's net result is an $8,000-$10,000 cut in my compensation package while my job description will stay the same. No other person in the company is being asked to take a cut in compensation. I have an excellent work record with a spotless personnel file. My questions are related to age discrimination, sex discrimination or anything else that may save me from this situation. It is my belief that our new manager is using this to push me out the door and use the cost savings for increased compensation for herself and another younger employee (quite possibly in the form of heath insurance for the both of them). What are some options that I may have?

I have told the individual to please stop and still nothing.

I have told the individual to please stop and still nothing. I have not went to management (My boss) because I don't want to get in trouble for anything. Im not a trouble maker. And I feel like they already know of the issues but just don't want to acknowledge them. I just have no clue what options/ routes I have to choose from.

My daughter just told me that she heard she was going to get

my daughter just told me that she heard she was going to get fired from her job. She is the person when you come into a independent clinic that ask what is wrong, gets insurance information etc.. She has been doing this job for years. this company is relatively new and has about 10 clinics. Her boss at her clinic thinks she does a good job and does not want to fire, it is coming from higher up. My daughter says there is no reason for her firing she thinks someone higher up doesn't like her. There two women in this office with the danger of getting fired. They are both Hispanic. Does she have any recourse?
