Surge in Job Seekers with Social Security and Medicare Entitlement Programs Now in Question
Posted on July 26, 2011 at 12:30 PM EDT
Americans have been on edge for weeks now in a wait-and-see mode as Congress tries to compile a plan to shrink the deficit and raise the $14 trillion debt ceiling. FlexHourJobs.com, a free website which helps Retirees boost retirement income with Part-time, Flex-time and Telecommuting Job opportunities, sees a substantial recent rise in job seekers to their Job Board.
With more than 80 million checks to Seniors, Veterans and the Disabled in question next week, Baby Boomers and Retirees are getting nervous, unsure whether their Medicare will be covered or whether their Social Security checks will arrive in time to pay their obligations. For the 65 million Americans who are caring for an aging family member/ friend , chronically ill or disabled person, the current situation threatens to negatively impact many household incomes.
FlexHourJobs.com attributes much of the recent anxiety to this increase in job seekers. "For many of these seniors and caregivers, working from home or flexible work scheduling is the only answer right now.", says Jacqueline Sloboda, Founder & CEO of FlexHourJobs.com. In a recent national study, 75% of people age 50 and older stated that they expect to have retirement jobs. The reality is that tens of millions of Baby Boomers are going off to work at a time when their parent's generation went off to the sidelines. It is a new reality for American Retirees.
FlexHourJobs.com suggests considering whether part time or full time employment will suit your needs. Do the opportunities you want require additional training? If you are already employed, try to persuade your employer that you're indispensable, while looking for ways to make an impact on a reduced or flexible schedule. Other considerations might be job sharing, freelance work, fulltime flex hours, or telecommuting.
Retirement Jobs are no longer about working at the hardware store or the local shuttle bus service. There are a huge range of professional careers that look to utilize the skills that people have acquired in their careers as engineers, executives, lawyers or accountants. An increasing number of employers are sprucing up benefits such as flexible work schedules in order to retain skilled older workers. Offering the ability to work from home, perhaps not fulltime, provide flexibility in start/end times or perhaps seasonal or temporary work helps to retain talented workers.
FlexHourJobs.com offers Flex Hour and Work from Home Job opportunities in over 50 different categories, including administrative, accounting, communications, marketing, engineering, event planning, consulting, customer service, culinary arts, general business among others. Entry level, Junior and Executive jobs are all available, giving retirees the option of continuing work in their career field or trying something new.
FlexHourJobs.com was founded by Jacqueline Sloboda, the daughter of a 65 year old who was forced into retirement. The website offers flexible hour jobs screened for legitimacy nationwide that are easily accessible in one location. It is a member of the International Association of Employment Websites.
