Seniors In The Workforce

— NPR's David Molpus reports that there's an increase in the number of senior citizens getting back into the work force...and more want to work, but can't find a job. During the corporate downsizing of the past 15 years, many of today's seniors were forced to retire earlier than they'd planned. Now out of financial necessity or boredom with full-time leisure, they're looking for jobs...often starting entirely new careers.
