Maybe I'm being a tad negative, but I have been listening and am hearing from a number of sectors that when the actual (vs. artificially enhanced numbered) job market does improve many baby boomers will not be rehired and find themselves jobless for the remainder of their lives. That may induce many of them to try starting a business on their own, consulting (not that the Gen Xers of Gen Yers will be eager to hire them) or just hunker down so they can make it to the finish line of life without being impoverished.

What are any of you hearing?

    Well, I can tell you that I am sixty years old and I have applied to just about everything short of the local BurgerButt and I get no response most of the time and a polite rejection letter the rest. They can’t discriminate due to age, but they don’t have to tell you why they are rejecting your application.

    That’s why I am self employed, and I have to say I’m glad I am. At least now, with the help of a mirror, I can call my boss a jerk to his face!
