Winnetka is a neighborhood in the west-central San Fernando Valley in the city of Los Angeles. It is a highly diverse area, both for the city and for Los Angeles County, with a relatively large percentage of Hispanic and Asian people. Winnetka was founded in 1922 as a small farming community. Today there are six public and three private schools in the area, a recreation center, two pocket parks and a city-operated child-care center.

Cost of living is on the rise, but there are good hospitals, education available. It is a concern that age discrimination in the workplace is high here. It appears that employers do not care about experience. They look at it as they would have to pay higher wages to the more experienced and prefer to hire younger individuals at minimum wage. I have personally experienced this on interviews. Was told I was over-qualified for a position when I was just looking for something to do and was willing to accept a minimum wage job.
