Retired but not Tired

Retired army 2009. Recent issues: I was working full time. Industril fabrication shop. Welding , cutting steel parts, fabricating to blue prints, etc. I was hit by a car in July 2015, was off work for an entire year. Was denied disability. I guess a broken pelvis, left radius (arm), tibia, and femur on right leg, do not warrant disability benefits.
Anyway, I went back to work 8/2016. I had to have hardware removed from left wrist because thumb wouldnt bend anymore. The Occupational therapist at the Indy VAsaid no use of left arm for 4 months. My job fired me Nov. 23rd. Happy Thanksgiving , eh? lol. So, I'm lookin' for a job that doesnt required heavy lifting. I have complete use of right arm which is my dominant side. And limited use of left. I can move fingers, just not thumb. If any has any ides I'd greatly appreciate it. The sad thing is, is that this will be the 3rd Christmas in a row that I have been without a job. I always know when its Christmas. I'm off work. Thanks and best wishes to all. Peace.

Professional Superintendent out of work

Being 63 years old with 45 years of commercial construction experience with all kinds of diverse projects under my belt is making me less attractive because of my age. Good thing I invested in real estate while I was making hay. Really bored need challenging project to take on.

I am problems finding a job. I have a associate degree in business. With a studies in operations management.. I have been out of work for awhile don't mean I have forgot what I learned. My maybe 60 that don't mean I can't learn a new job. My degree also include quality control and retail learning. Just because I have not worked in retail doesn't mean I don't know how.

Why is it so hard for someone to find jobs if they are not young, I am 56 and very able to do any job and never given a chance I build diesel engines and no one will give me the time of day, And have many talents in the work force.

Confused and frustrated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm totally confused and frustrated right now. In June I checked into rehab for my alcohol problem, I finished the programs on Sep 1. Here is the first curve ball thrown at me on Aug 19 I was terminated for absenteeism (I was in Outpatient phase). I was devastated but keep my head up and did not start drinking again. I started filling out applications and continue my therapy session's (Group and therapist). At this time I am still unemployed, but still sober 158 day's. I am lying on app's on anything. I just can not figure this out, I helped myself and I got screwed. I am 60 years old and veteran (10 yr's). I'm just getting frustrated with everything. Seem's I can not get a break, even fast food's not even interested.

Not fitting in

I worked for this awesome carefacility company for a few days and loved it. But then suddenly i was let go, because i didnt fit in as they put it. I am seeing this more and more. I am over 55 and struggling to work to make ends meet. The thing is you do your job, follow the job description to the letter, make every client happy and then pow Why is this.

Ms

Hi,
I am looking for a part time cashier job to supplement my social security. I am finding it difficult because most places want young people to work for them but older people tend to be more reliable and a lot friendlier than some of the younger people I have seen working with the public. I have worker 45 years serving the public and love people and just want to work with them again. Please give me a chance.
