Bethany-you know have ticked me off big time.  I've been holding back on the air.  Biting my tongue, if you will. You read a statistic this morning that made my hair stand up (both of them) 

I'm trying to find what study she read that determined somehow that 41 is too late to find a new job.  That's crazy talk.  (I know - I'm a little sensitive about this subject - I still think I could do ANY job that didn't involve heavy lifting - even at my age, and I'm …let's just say....40++

Here's what I'm thinkin', I feel that older workers (even in their 50s and 60s) would actually make BETTER workers than younger ones, and although I I found an article to back it up, I could have told you this anyway!

!. Older people are loyal (they don't have a desire to jump careers - they've already done it!)

3. They're more serious about their work.  Less distractions. See #2.

4. You won't have to worry about them starting up an office romance or wasting company time.  See #3.

5. Better work ethic.

The list goes on and on.

Take that, Bethany! (I wonder if she's gonna read this? - I'll wait til tomorrow to see.
