Customer Question

I've worked for a company for approximately 23 years they told me it looks like you've slowed down and it's harder for you to get around and get things done, I do have issues with my knees they'll need to be replaced and I'm 61 so they told me they were knocking me down to part-time moving me to a different store taking back some of my wages and I would lose my insurance. I was a deli mgr so they gave the job to a man that is 50. Don't know if there's anything I can do with this that's why I'm asking you guys.
