OK, Many of you are sick of me and some find me repetitive. Can we please forgive that for a moment? I am 65 and require knee surgery (total knee replacement) of both knees. I am on Medicare and have a Medicare Supplement Plan thru United Health Care. There are interfering difficulties that I won't go into just now but suppose I do have the surgery and, in 6 months to a year, I am able to walk, jog, ride a bicycle with the best of you? What then do I do for a job if Uber or similar companies no longer require our services? Do we throw tantrums like some yellow cab drivers are doing? Do we get political and try to get the politicians to help us out (IMO not at all likely!) Many of us are senior citizens. Suppose we go back to school for a 2 yr certificate in some medical field. What is the likelihood of us getting hired.? Forget the self-serving bull**** about older workers being better employees. Most hiring managers are in their 30s and 40s. I do not believe that the majority would pick a senior citizen over some-one closer to their own age. Sexism, Ageism, Racism, are all very much real and active, in our subconscious if not conscious minds. I am 1 of 3 adult children taking turns caring for a 90 year old Mom with advanced Alzheimer's disease. I donate (3) 10 hour days to this, and try to Uber around it. Not only is there a physical as well as an emotional cost, but the knowledge that there is no one to do the same for my brother and me eats at our souls every day. Various forms of suicide, as well as the time and place of execution, are talked about in serious conversation at least once a week. We have no desire to reach the level of infirmity our Mom is at now.... incontinent, does not know who her children are, can't retain any new memories ( you can't enjoy a tv show if you have already forgotten the second that proceeded the new scene...) But getting back to the job situation. Lets say all ridesharing locks us out. If you are 65 or older what do you see as a viable option? Or should we all just join hands and jump off that fabled bridge? Dead serious!
