Thanks to Frugal Zeitgeist for pointing out this article in the New York times. It's about a program geared to retirees who miss the workplace but NOT their prior jobs. I'm intrigued that it pays--not much, but $25,000 year, which would be a handy supplement to one's retirement funds.
It really isn't for me, since I've spent my working life with non-profits.
But I wonder if my banker-sister would like it? She's retiring this year after thirty years in the upper echelons of the banking world. She isn't sure what she wants to do after she retires. Volunteering appeals to her, but she would like to use skills other than her financial ones, which are of course, the particular skills everyone wants from her. She's thinking about teaching. Or religious study. Or something.
I plan to send this article her way, if she hasn't already read it.
