Come on, retire? Really?

Grab that crutch and get a job!

Hey, with pensions evaporated or challenged and young people cruising the streets to find old people using up their money on rent and stuff, many people just keep working, if they can find work.

Good grief, we have come this far.

What are some “good” jobs for older people that do not require a paper hat and mastery of the phrase, “Do you want to supersize that?”

Well, social worker might be one, although this can take a lot of running around in the car. Median income: $40,000ish.

Health care administrator is another, Think $60,000 to $100,000.

Adult literacy…put your reading to work. $22 an hour.

Health educator…hey, I am gimping around and I try to be one, so how about $33,000 to $60,000?

Eligibility interviewer…This means seeing if people can qualify for assistance. Means people person. $40,000 best case.

Travel agent—what the heck, take the discounts and book! And I don't mean book a trip.
