    I fail to understand the big deal about having to work.  
    unemployed with no ability to collect unemployment,
     
      Due to ageism, some of us were pushed out of the workforce before age 50, even if we're physically able to keep working.

    •  I had to resign (0+ / 0-)

      To care of my child who was ill.  Now that he is back in school, I am unable to find a job, and because I resigned I can't collect  unemployment.  Even if I was able to collect, I would feel guilty for getting something for nothing.  That I why I am working with 5 different recruiters.  So with a bit of luck I will have a job before summer.  And once I do have a job I intend on working until in am in my late 70s, God willing.
