No class action lawsuit here based on that alone. While it is logical to question why Target is asking the quesition in that manner, it is not illegal for a potential employer to require the birthdate of a potential employee. Target may simply be collecting data in that manner to make it easier to compile their EEOC compliance report. What might be illegal age discrimination is if Target did not hire anyone who was over 40. Go to www.eeoc.gov to read more about age discrimination and what evidence is needed.
