A recent survey revealed that one out of five senior citizens over the age of 65 are still working.
Some are working because of financial issues, but there are those who feel there is more they can accomplish.
And there are those like myself, who don't feel ready to fully retire. I work for Northeast Plumbing in Mineola. I have been employed there for over 38 years and I will be 70 next summer.
Our senior citizens have much to offer in the workplace and deserve a chance to prove it. Employers, give a job to a senior citizen and you will be glad that you did.
