Why Are The Elderly Hired As Low Level Employees?
When they have more work ethic and experience than the oftentimes incompetent managers and assistant managers.
1. Obamacare penalizes small businesses that don't offer health insurance, but if you are on Medicare, you have insurance via Medicare - so they can hire a bunch of retirees and avoid penalties from the mandates and health insurance costs.
2. If you hire a teenager, they may not have a work ethic, but elders who have to work do.
3. Early twenty somethings working at a low level tend to complain that they aren't getting a living wage or demand $15 an hour for minimum wage / basic work. Retirees who need the money will be grateful for the job and not demand more than the work is worth.
Being 70 and in the position of needing a supplementary income to my retirement I am very aware of this situation. My opinion is that the vast majority of people don't like to hire people who may turn out to know more than they do or who may be smarter than they are. That doesn't just apply to the elderly, as any number of intelligent young people can attest to, but it is more widespread.

There's nothing wrong with that: Obama and Romney have fundamentally different approaches to Medicare and they deserve attention. Romney, for example, wants to increase the eligibility age to 67 and convert Medicare into a...

Rubio is like the rest of the Republitard jerks. He wants to do away with medicare by setting the voucher to the cost of living instead of to the rise in health costs. Other countries that use the voucher system do not do that, but rather have a set percentage of income from the elderly that goes...

BEWARE THE PUBLIC OPTION TRAPBy DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANNAs any good Persian rug dealer knows, you have to hold back a bargaining chit so that you can whip it out at the very end to tie down the sale. That's how Obama is playing the so-called public option in his healthcare program. His plan...

Shouldn't there have been healthcare reform before Obamacare is implemented?Healthcare reform would mean looking into a countless number of things wrong with the system.Yet now we are getting a new insurance that there are so many concerns about. It's like rebuilding an engine without taking it...
