10 Jobs Hiring Older Workers

September 21, 2015
MSN Money: 10 jobs hiring older workers

This article has offered up some real job prosperity for those aged 50 and over (like me). No doubt about it. Check out the wages that our lifetime of experience can generate!

Median Hourly Wage

1. $12.19
2. $12.81
3. $12.72
4. $11.74
5. $11.24
6. $12.72
7. $11.16
8. $11.51
9. $11.90
10. $23.14

If you are like me, then I know what you are thinking. Job #10 please!! It might not match the pay of a CEO, but it is certainly vastly superior to the rest in the list!

That's the Bridge Tender job. If you have a lot of bridge tending experience and live in a city with thousands of bridges then I would encourage you to apply. The federal, state, and local governments are practically giving these jobs away!

Forehead. Desk. Whack. Depressing. Whack. Depressing. Whack. Depressing. Sigh.

I my self, havin' grown up in da city of Chigaga, back when His Honor Da Great Mayor Daley was running tings, I can tell ya dat bein' a bridge tender was one a da best patronage jobs dat you could get. Der were more bridges back den dough. Not allot of dem anymore dat open.

By da way, another good job were doughs guys dat lived on da water intakes out in da lake. Day would spend all winter out der, makin' sure da water was turnin ta ice; it wasn't an easy job dats for sure.

But, by far, da best job dough, was title-wave watcher. Da guys dat had doughs jobs really earned dere pay, despite what da newspaper used ta say: we never had a title-wave hit Chigaga, never, so dats tellin ya sometin right der.

Doesn't Social Security get cut if you exceed a certain threshold. Sounds like most employers are
doing the aged a favor !
