What is a disadvantage of the seniority system?
Wow, this is interesting.
The idea that one person has more power because they are older
is just crazy.
I believe that if one person believes they have more power, they
could just abuse and become very harsh.

What are the advantages of the seniority system?
Its Good When It Comes Down to picking whos first...Seniority is very important in Congress. Under the seniority system, committee chairmanships and other influential positions are decided on the basis of how long a member has been in Congress. The seniority system was created to weaken the power of the Speaker of the House, which had become almost dictatorial. The system provides for an orderly hierarchy and ensures that committee chairmen are sufficiently experienced. Seniority also has its drawbacks: it limits the opportunities for talented young members of Congress to make their mark. Seniority also makes Congress less responsive to reform because power is concentrated in the hands of older, established members.
